For my birthday, my boyfriend gave me a lego technic set and a motor kit. At first I was skeptic. I love lego, but I hate orange, and I didn’t like the look of this item. It’s cool, but it’s nothing I’d WANT.

However, once I got to building, it was incredibly satisfying. There are so many little cogs and moving parts to fit together, building this amazing core piece of “twist here and that thing moves, twist there and a different part moves”. I put together a little video of the thing when it was finished. The cats were helpfully absent during the build, but delightedly horrified by the sounds when the motor ran, while I was filming.

To get a better view of the actual enjoyment part, I recommend watching a speed build.
