Although LEGO began as wooden toys back in 1932 it was the LEGO system, in 1958, that really cemented the toy as the devs favourite grown-up toy. In this talk Steve reviews some of the biggest, smallest, weirdest, and intriguing LEGO-related projects of recent times, including a working harpsichord, docking bay 94, a portrait of Tori Amos, and a Mindstorms Segway.
Steven is a games developer from London, England, has been involved in science and technology from an early age, and built his first synthesizer while still in his teens. Since then his projects have been wide and varied. He has sold over a million computer games, written four books, built robots and has an automated house that can be controlled from the Internet. He has spoken at many conferences, including NotCon, Develop, FOSDEM, and OpenTech.
In addition to being a dev, he is the founder and admin of the LEGO Punk web site.
