When I was a kid, I was infatuated with Legos. Who am I kidding? I am still infatuated with Legos! Imagine when I realized that my love of oceanography and my long ignored love of Legos could be combined. Below the fold are some wonderful examples of what $1000 worth of Legos and too much free time can yield. You can see more of these here, here, and here.
All this reminds me several years ago when I spotted a Lego Technics set that was of Alvin. As a poor graduate student I didn’t purchase it, a decision I regret weekly. Does anybody remember this or know where to get one?
