This Electric Vehicle Is Made From 7,000 Lego Pieces

If you don't have the budget to upgrade your everyday commute with an e-scooter, there's something at your own house that you can make use of.

If you don't have the budget to upgrade your everyday commute with an e-scooter, there's something at your own house that you can make use of. This go-kart runs on electricity and it is made completely out of Lego. So dust off all the Lego bricks you have left from your childhood and get into work.

This go-kart was built in around three weeks, from more than 7,000 Lego Technic pieces. There are 8 electric motors in each wheel, which means 32 motors in total, allowing the kart to meet the speed of about 4 kilometers per hour. But this depends largely on the size of its riders. Should their weights be less than 68 kilograms, things would be just about right. You do know that you won’t be able to race on this kart, but you would still commute quite fast in the traffic jam you have been dealing with every day on your way to work.

To control the go-kart, you need to use an app installed on your smartphone, which you can mount on the kart's steering wheel. This app is powered by 8 BuWizz bricks which can serve as an alternative to those Lego boxes that provide sensors and electricity to your inventions. We could’ve just built the standard control bricks into the kart, but it would worsen the performance of this go-kart, for BuWizz bricks can offer more power as well as longer battery life.

As far as we can tell, this electric vehicle contains no braking system, but you can bring it from its pace to a stop by using electric motors. But come on, you won’t hit anything or anyone with that snail speed. In case you do, it wouldn’t be too expensive to repair the kart, or you could just break it down entirely and create another invention.
