Life-Size Car Made from LEGOs, Powered by Air [Video]

“A teenage genius in Romania. A man from Melbourne. 40 patrons. 500,000+ LEGO pieces. LEGO engine runs on air.”

Thus begins the video depicting a black and yellow life-sized car made completely from LEGOs.

And the result came from one man’s idea…and one teenage genius.

It is the brainchild of Melbourne entrepreneur and marketing guy Steve Sammartino (Twitter: @sammartino) and Raul Oaida (Twitter: @rauloaida), a self-taught teenage technology genius from Romania who Steve met on the internet.

Steve crowdfunded it via twitter with a single tweet.
