Turing machine, Millenium Falcon and Counter Strike

Animations made with Lego bricks again. This time I picked videos from two blogs (Stritar, Marx-blog). The first animation shows a working Turing machine. This is an imaginary gadget that illustrates how a computer could work - invented by famous British mathematician and code breaker Alan Turing in 1936.

The next video shows how the biggest 10179 Millenium Falcon is built. The set has 5195 parts - for comparison, the largest Technic set ever made, the 8421-es Mobile Crane has 1884 elements. So the Falcon contains almost three times as many! I cannot imagine how long would it take to build it in real time.

At last, a bit of fun (caution, content not suitable for minors). One of my favorite games, Counter Strike is played with Lego minifigs on the level de_inferno.
