A fully working Super8 film projector built out of... Lego Technic blocks!

A fully working Super8 film projector built out of... Lego Technic blocks!: "

It is amazing what can come into life if you have a good idea and you transform it into reality. Friedemann Wachsmuth and his friend built a fully working Super8 movie projector using Lego Technic blocks! Of course not all parts were made by Lego, but the only non-Lego parts are the lens, the reel spindles and the lamp. The author says that "the projector uses just two engines and is fully featured with automatic feeding, 24 fps, fast rewind and 120m reel capabilities. A decent LED flashlight makes it pretty amazingly bright".

Even though you might think that projecting Super8 film is a largely unnecessary hassle these days you must admit that those words are clearly meaningless to the camera built by Friedemann. Check out the video included to see the projector in action!

We wonder what more could be built with the use of Lego blocks. Any cool ideas?
