This fan-made LEGO construction could mean that your biggest creations can be built while you’re not even in the same room.
LEGO YouTuber, The Brick Wall, creates various mechanical devices out of LEGO bricks. These include a working hay-baler and tapas factories. With his latest creation, perhaps he’ll soon be out of a job, as it can actually build LEGO bridges itself.
The machine is made of LEGO Technic parts, with telescoping support buildings and a dual installation system. It can be viewed from the top by minifigures, and can also place the towers and lay down tracks and plates along the top. This creates a bridge that LEGO vehicles can use to traverse the bridge.
The machine works in sections, rotating 90 degrees at regular intervals to slowly lower down towers to take the weight of both itself and the bridge it’s constructing. Once a tower is in place, additional guidance tracks can be extended out so that core machine can continue its job.
The final product measures six feet in length and stands approximately 20 inches high. The entire project was made up of approximately 18,000 bricks. It took eight weeks to complete.
