Creations with Lego pieces are increasingly creative and surprising. This time, designers from “The Brick Wall”, a YouTube channel dedicated to engineering projects with the toy, created a tapas factory – typical Spanish aperitif – made of Lego. The project took a month to complete.
To build the fully automated contraption, 19 Lego power engines were required, in addition to special parts that guaranteed movements such as gears and gears. The team also used five BuWizz, types of remote controls for Legos.
The tapas factory not only “serves the customer”, but also makes appetizers. A belt carries baguettes to be cut by a series of ropes. After receiving a covering, the tapas are taken by another conveyor belt that adds cheese, cucumber, smoked salmon, apple and ham to the bread slices.
Then, the gadget inserts toothpicks with tomato and cheese. Finally, a waiter rob removes the tapas, as well as a glass of beer, to serve the guests.
“The idea of the tapas factory came up after a family trip last year to Spain, Barcelona,” explained the caption on the video. “After a long day of sightseeing, my parents enjoyed the evening in a small restaurant. They were like kids at the candy store going after different tapas every night. It was certainly a very special and unforgettable experience. ”
The video showing the contraption in action has already seen more than a million views on YouTube.
