Spending all day writing code can be a lonely experience, so why not build your own little office worker. You can watch him work all day, instead of doing your work. This is the “Office Worker Lego Automaton” created by JK Brickworks. This little build features one office worker, one office chair, a PC style computer tower, a monitor, speakers, keyboard, mouse, desk, mug, headphones, and a potted plant. All the stuff you need to compile code, pivot excel spread sheets, or play Doom. This Lego build is also an automaton. You can turn the crank and watch the little worker type. The design can even be motorized so he can work on his own. A neat feature is that the vignette can be modified to reflect your own settings. You can easily add duel monitors, change to a standing desk, change the speakers, change the potted plant, and modify the appearance of the worker. So compile code, commit to GitHub, and start debugging now with this Lego automaton.
customBRICKS has created this minifigure scale Lego Apple Macintosh. This micro 128k computer is perfectly simple. Every piece has its place, and no Lego piece is superfluous. This little guy is actually a micro version of Chris McVeighs larger Lego Mac “hello.” which can be seen here. I don’t believe the 128k can get any cuter.
There are a few iconic computer designs. One of the most recognizable is the original Apple Macintosh, also known as the Macintosh 128k. With its 512 × 342 black and white display happily greeting the world with a friendly “hello.” Chris McVeigh, aka: powerpig, has created one of the most popular Lego MOCs of one of the most popular computers. There are even free instructions available at http://chrismcveigh.com/cm/welcome.html. You can also buy a custom kit based on the 128k Mac. Hopefully the Lego version is a bit cheaper then the original $2,495 price tag.
