Everyone can make out the transition of technology from the telephone by Alexander Graham Bell to the smartphones of today. Sudden fact: Apple was not the inventor of the smartphone. It was IBM and the first ever considered smartphone was called Simon. |
Going back to the topic at hand, these technologies are the results of the toils of genius masterminds in technology. The adage, “Great minds think alike,” is laid out by the tech titans given that their smartphones all look the same only differing with the specifications and operating systems. If this is true for great minds, so it is for playful ones.
The toy for every playful mind whatever the age may be will be the undying LEGOs. Let’s agree to agree, shall we? LEGOs are being employed in certain areas of technology such as programming – LEGO Mindstorms – mobile phone protective cases and docks, mp3 players, and external storage devices.
These little gears are available for everyone, not just the geeky fellows. In fact, they can surely bring back the child in every one of us.
LEGO Protective Cases
Just recently, Tinkerbrick launched their very own style for iPhones and iPods, a protective case that will be reminded of LEGO blocks for anyone who sees it. Another protective case for smartphones is the iPhone Brick Case that allows one to assemble practically anything on the back of his phone. Only reminder is to keep it away from little ones as they might mistake it for their favourite building blocks.
LEGO Speakers and Dock
LEGO speakers and dock in one is a creative twist for LEGO aficionados. The LEGO speakers need no batteries for it to function, simply stick your player on it. This nifty tool comes from Perpetual Kid so if you wish to buy yourself one, you know where to go.
And now if you are interested in using those blocks to construct your own smartphone dock, Steven Combs has done it for you. His DIY iPhone dock is capable of sheltering your smartphone anyway you prefer – landscape or portrait.
LEGO Data Storage
Introducing the Zip Zip Hard Drive – now you should really be careful with this one because they don’t come cheap. The Zip Zip Hard Drive Brick can keep 500 gigabytes up to one terabyte of memory. This is the playful counterpart for regular external hard disk drives already available in stores. Well, I do love LEGOs but sadly, I don’t have the patience to build really complicated edifices without guide. Nevertheless, leaving these awesome contraptions will be a waste. Hey, LEGO is not only for small kids sprawling about but also all for the young at hearts and holders of a playful mind.
