Unlicensed Lego Lamps Give the Thrill of Lego and Eminent Subpoena

It's sort of cheating to use one big Lego to build a "Lego" anything, but for this lamp we'll make an exception. By 25togo from Japan, the Lego Lamp is powered by white LEDs and has snap-off caps to store stuff in the pegs. But maybe the most promising premise is to interlock multiple units and create a gigantic glowing Lego robot, castle or—and I'm just throwing this out there—a mega Lego Lamp. And at that point, the process could repeat itself on an even bigger scale. But at $15 a lamp, my Vision could get expensive quickly. [25togo via technabob]

@GeekyNerdGuy: I understand where you're coming from, and it's perfectly okay to not be enthralled or understand the enthrallment of others.

Since you asked (no, you didn't) I will add my 2 cents: I enjoy watching/reading/hearing people be passionate and opiniated and excited about things. (Not that kind of passionate, you pervs. Not here, anyway.) Sometimes I join in, some times I am just a voyeur, but it beats the heck out of "Right on" and "Yeah, me too" and the like.

Lego building materials inspire that kind of excitement in some people. I agree, not necessarily in me (I didn't even build as a kid), but it's fun to read about because of that excitement.
