lego2.jpgA commenter on our Blockland post wanted to know where to get LegoCad, I’m pretty sure LDraw is what he’s looking for and it’s found here. LDraw is an open standard for making virtual LEGO models. The cool thing about this is, as LEGO comes out with new parts, LDraw supports them. Mac and PC guides here. And speaking of LEGOs. Check out the handmade LEGO designs from jewelry designer, Jacqueline Sanchez on”>design*sponge, She makes rings, cufflinks and more from LEGO/ Of course, I’ll need to make a version that also works with the LEGO robots somehow…

    The lego cufflinks is ingenious.
    I wish I would have come up with that.
    There’s been alot of theme cufflink ideas popping up lately, like led cufflinks and token cufflinks.
    I wonder what the legal copyright laws are regarding the lego cufflinks would be?
    Anyways I’m going to try and come up with a theme set of cuff links.
