Sinclair ZX81 computer made from Lego bricks

by ruchi

Be it a computer or an action figure, the Lego makeover never goes out of fashion. A tech enthusiast here is showing off his Lego-ized verson of Sinclair ZX81 computer which was a low-cost introduction to home computing back in 1981. The maker has used a software to upload the model, buy it and get a boxed set with all the pieces to build it with instructions. The model here closely represents the original one with respect to size considering Lego is quite a low-resolution modeling tool. The enthusiast has also posted this one to Lego’s Cuusoo site where one can post ideas and the most popular one will walk itself into production.
