After reading this you may be convinced that Raul Oaida is one of the most brilliant inventors of our time. He is only 21 years old, so his years of inventing are just in their infancy. One of his recent inventions is winning the hearts of people young and old. It is a car made completely out of Legos. This should make the child within you squeal with delight. I mean, come on! You are never too old to appreciate a good Lego project, right? Now I am going to go on to tell you something even better about Raul’s invention. It runs on air. What are you thinking now? Is your mind blown? Because it should be! It is a full size car made completely of Legos that runs on air. That’s right, you can make a car out of toys, and have it run without fuel. Zero emissions. And here is how.
This is Raul working on the project. The Lego car took almost two years to complete.
The project enlisted the help of 40 donators from a crowdfunding site.
Raul also had the help of Melbourne entrepreneur and marketing man, Steve Sammartino.
They raised $22,000 for the project. The $22,000 that was pledged was definitely put to good use. The car consists of over 500,000 Lego pieces. Have you purchased Legos recently? They’re not exactly cheap.
The most impressive part of this vehicle is the engine. It is built out of Legos, of course.
The engine consists of four separate orbital engines that are each equipped with 64 cylinders and pistons. That is 256 pistons which are driven by a rather mysteriously placed canister of compressed air.
It has a top speed of 20mph.
