LEGO & Engineering (plus a Volvo)

Postby Gingerbeard Man » Tue Mar 03, 2009 6:01 am

The last issue (03/2009) of the IET's Engineering & Technology magazine has a series of interesting articles on LEGO. (Unfortunately it has been lying at the bottom of my in-tray for a few weeks, so a new issue must be just around the corner.)

Play for tomorrow (about LEGO's future)
Lego for life
Building on a dynasty (the LEGO factory)

I had never heard of the LEGO Volvo XC90 until I saw the picture heading that last article.

Thanks for the links, Gingerbeard!

I read the one about the LEGO factory and I will never be able to grasp the complexity of the entire production process. There are so many inter-dependent factors, my mind explodes just trying to think of them!
