Five Foot Lego Blackberry Adds Punchline Functionality

We're no strangers to the work of Lego master Nathan Sawaya, but his latest creation achieved the impossible: making a Blackberry exciting. It incorporates a working flat screen TV for comfortably displaying video. Clearly he took some artistic liberties.

Hey! Just kidding. I'm a proud—well, not proud, but not like totally ashamed either—Blackberry Bold owner and it works for sending text messages and using Google Maps to keep me oriented. And let's not forget that RIM is doing just fine, thank you very much. But it's true, I've never once watched a video on my Bold.

Sawaya's man-size Blackberry Tour was commissioned for the BlackBerry Developer Conference, where it will be the only thing attendees will be able to recall of the event in 5 years. [Brick Artist via TechnaBob]
