As I stated in the beginning of my humble Twitter career, Lego is the solution to everything, and I live by that in a way. And no, I don’t mean that I go around incorporating Lego builds to solve all my problems, even though that would be truly awesome. What I mean by that expression is that if everyone had a little more Lego in their life, the world would truly look a whole lot better and be a lot more peaceful. Problem solving is the one key to success in anything, and what better way to practice this awesome skill than by thinking in 3D just like when playing with Lego. So it’s not too hard to understand the envy we feel towards the little Lego figures that get to stroll around in cities built entirely of Lego. If you think about it, what a perfect world! They can do whatever they want with the blocks at their disposal, over and over again.
There is something on the horizon that might catch your interest if you’re a hardcore Lego fanatic that constantly delves into the block world to build anything and everything. Designer and Lego pioneer, Jonathan Robson, came up with a really awesome way for children to get into their books through a life size Lego helmet. The helmet incorporates a USB memory slot where you can easily plug in a memory stick which holds the book they want to listen to.
By putting that helmet on, you are sure to enjoy the audio books at your disposal. There are several comics out there, and with every issue of the Audiocomic book, you will receive a code which you can use to download the audio content for your memory stick. Then you just go ahead and start reading and immerse yourself in the world of Lego. It’s not only a way to read books or comics, it’s also a great way to learn how to read while understanding the connection between the text and the images in front of you. It’s one of the coolest ideas this week if you ask me. But then again, I am an incurable Lego fanatic as you all know.
