Android and LEGO enthusiast GLHTurbo has built Andy the Bug Droid out of LEGOs – two hundred and five LEGO pieces to be exact. We are not talking about a kit here, GLHTurbo built his creation from scratch. His piecemeal project cost him $30 by the time he was done buying the LEGOs.
Let’s talk about where GLHTurbo needs our help. He would like to see his creation sold as a kit by LEGO and he is looking for ten thousand supporters for his project via the LEGO Cuusoo website. Cuusoo is a website where community member can share their concept ideas for LEGO projects. In order to even have your project considered, by LEGO, the developer needs to garner ten thousand supporters. Supporters can log onto the Cuusoo website, via Facebook or Twitter, and vote for the project through the project's concept page.
If Andy/Bug Droid is produced as a LEGO kit, it should lower the price and make the pieces for the project more readily available.
Being a fan of LEGO and Google's Android operating system, this creation was only natural for me. I did some searching and couldn't find any really good Android LEGO builds so I decided to build one myself.
Ten thousand supporters is a pretty lofty goal, but GLHTurbo should be commended and he should be able to find more than enough support from the Android Community to reach his goal.
The LEGO Andy/Bug Droid has some cool features, including a head and arms that that can rotate 360 degrees. The included antennae can also be moved around and positioned. Most of the creation was made with lime green LEGOs.
GLHTurbo would like to make a Developers Edition LEGO Andy with a flying rocket/jet pack in the future.
GLHTurbo needs Android community support, let’s step up and show him that our community takes care of their own.
