Forget Composites, Build an A380 with Legos

We were much excited to see Airbus’s A350 XWB 3D cutaway model at last April’s Aircraft Interiors show at Hamburg, but this model of an A380 competes on a very different level.

It’s made out of Legos–and has a touch screen that can move the wheels and other parts.

Gizmodo says:

The PC program running on the touch screen controls eight Mindstorm NXTengines and six hitechnic servos, which in turn can retract the gear,open cargo doors, move the flaps, raise the air brakes, activate thelanding lights, move the tail fin, and throttle the engines, amongother actions.
