Last week over 250 excited children played with our Flying LEGO® exhibit in Copenhagen, Denmark. Here we see a little one that's a fully engaged pilot in the making!
Visitors will be able to experience and play with new technology combining LEGO® bricks and drones.
COPENHAGEN - February 15-18, children and families visiting the LEGO® World expo in Copenhagen, Denmark will have the chance to make their brick-building dreams take flight with a flock of interactive miniature drones developed by the Human Media Lab at Queen’s University in Canada in collaboration with the LEGO Group’s Creative Play Lab.
The system allows children to arrange LEGO elements into a shape of their choice and watch as a group of miniature drones takes flight to mimic the shape and colour of their creation in mid-air. With the aid of tiny sensors and gyroscopes, the system also tracks when the children move, twist and bend their designs. The drones faithfully replicate any shape alterations as an in-air animation.Read More
