The unstoppable force of LEGO creations is upon us. It just doesn’t stop, does it? Then again, do you really want it to? Didn’t think so. To feed that LEGO obsessed child within, I give you the NXT Pinball machine. As far as specs go, this 8,000-piece creation is quite impressive: six NXT robots, nine touch sensors, 10 light sensors and four motors.

Built by University of Windsor and Michael, School of Science student, Mark Gryn (an 11th grade student no less), the NXT LEGO pinball machine is fully controllable by NXT-G programming. (See, robots and LEGO’s are taking over the world afterall…) The only non-LEGO piece of the game is the old school steel ball.

It’s a combination of creativity, skill, and intelligence. I want it.

What better way to show off this grand piece of geekery than with a video, which is conveniently waiting for you right inside…
