Proving you really can do anything with Lego, one designer has made a loom from the iconic plastic pieces that can weave textiles, in a fashion never seen before.
Tomasz Zając’s intricate Lego Loom Machine is built mostly from Lego bricks and runs off a Lego Mindstorms NXT kit. Operating just like a standard loom would, this Lego version uses three reels of wool and separates it into multiple strands. An arm then places another strand of the wool across the rest and pulls down to secure its placement and, in turn, creating a woven fabric.
And there you have it – a DIY Lego textiles hub to start making clothe for your new winter wardrobe.
