Kewl Design Alert: Lego Mystery Box Could Become a Kit (If You Vote)

I came across a really kewl Lego Mystery Box on Boing Boing last week. The construction is completely ingenious and if the plans were online, it would be a really fun summer project. However, we might not have to spend weeks trying to figure it out: if designer Todd Wilder gets enough votes on Cuusoo, Lego might make it into a real kit!

First of all, you need to watch this to understand what on earth I am going on about. Then I'll fill you in on Cuusoo.



Kewl, right?!

Ok, now the next kewl part: Cuusoo — it's like Kickstarter for Lego projects!

According to the site:
  1. Have an Idea? Create a Project, share your product concept, and see what other people think.
  2. Get 10,000 Supporters: Projects with 10,000 supporters are reviewed quarterly by LEGO for a chance to become an official LEGO product.
  3. Receive Royalty: If your project passes review and is chosen for production, you will receive 1% of the total net sales of the product.
1% might not sound like much but this is Lego we're talking about; this thing could go gangbusters. $$$$$


Vote for the Mystery Box! (so I can buy one)

Head on over to Cuusoo to vote for the Mystery Box project. It doesn't have a big number of votes yet, in fact as I write this it's under 100 and needs 10,000 to become a kit. I'm surprised it hasn't taken off given the Boing Boing coverage but it's only been a couple of days... here's wishing Mr. Wilder lots of luck! I'd love to put this under the tree for the Dude (and me!) later this year ;)
