Take a ride with Gary Davis (Bricks for Brains) as he presents another creation for our parts festival using the LEGO® NEXO KNIGHTS™ Combo Power shield (Design ID 27255).
This simple mixer ride came to mind when I was thinking about using the Nexogons to create fractal patterns. Fractal patterns occur throughout the natural world whereby one simple shape is repeated multiple times to create complicated patterns.
I needed a base for the mixer and it suddenly came to me that a giant Nexogon would be a neat solution.
Together, they make the Nexo-mixer!
Like all good mixers, the riders can accelerate the rotation of their own pod by pulling on the wheel in the middle. Until I motorise it, they'll need to rely on me though!
