The setup is made entirely of Lego — with the exception of the circuit board in the mixer — and even includes a pair of Lego slipmats.
The setup is controlled with Lego Mindstorms (a robotics system developed by the plastic brickmakers), and Battle uses a series of cogs to spin the platters instead of a belt drive.
This isn’t the first time he’s worked with unconventional materials, having previously designed a ‘Furby Organ’ — which is as horrifying as it sounds.
