I admit it: I'm a total geek. I love electronics, programming, 3D art, vintage Apple hardware, and whisky. I'm always juggling half a dozen projects. I also enjoy documenting it all: my successes, my failures, my experiences... and everything geeky along the way.

Well, I’m not happy with the way version 1.5 came out. So here goes 2.0.
I was looking for something unique. Something solid, but simplistic and sleek. I needed to look no further than my twin 4-year olds and their infatuation with LEGO.
So that’s what I’m going to build the enclosure out of: 476 white LEGO blocks.
I downloaded LEGO’s Digital Designer and got to work.
The Digital Designer is an amazing piece of software for free. You can designer whatever you want completely out of LEGO in a simple 3D environment. With the press of a button, you can get a price quote, upload it to LEGO.com, and buy your custom creation right online. It’s then shipped to your door in about 2 weeks.
You can also generate a build guide and it will walk you through the whole build process. This is extremely useful once your pieces arrive.
