You remember how arduous making paper planes and flinging them used to be?
Well, no. Us neither. But a new Lego machine which can make, fold and fire them on its own is pretty cool anyway.
The machine is controlled with two NXT computers and a variety of servos and neat innovations, which takes a piece of paper from its flat, boring state to an awesome flying dart in seconds.
We're sure global militaries are watching. And we have to admit, a giant version of this machine mounted on a battlecruiser would make for a twisted, hypnotic sight. Get on it, Darpa!
