6x4x2 wheel configuration with Ackermann steering and hybrid live-axle suspension. Telescoping boom. Impressive 1kg lifting capacity.

Jennifer Clark builds amazing things with lego.

Wow, some of these photos I have to look really closely to see if it has studs. I love the explanations too.

Another incredible builder I found (via his YouTube videos) is foxbox. Not much info on how the devices work, but still amazing.

Not Lego, but related in the magnificent obsession sense: Jerry Brown : A scale steam crane fulfills a lifetime desire to own and run one

Amazing though this crane is, I don't think it could pick up my eyes and put them back in my head.

Legos sure have come a long way since I was a kid. That crane is a thing of beauty.

Great post. I sent this to some engineer colleagues, just to enjoy the sight of them drooling and turning green with envy when they read their e-mail in the morning.

Ackermann steering? That's a lot of blocks!

She truly has great talent. Speaking as someone who spent most of his childhood building very complex mechanisms with technical lego.

My heavens. But I hope she doesn't become a chef....

The descriptions of each component are mind-blowing in their specificity. Unbelievably great.
