Just For Fun is a series that showcases some fun use that technology has been put to.

20,000-piece Lego organ barrel plays the Star Wars theme on a keyboard

To promote the 3D release of Star Wars Episode 1: The Phantom Menace, this Lego organ barrel was created with 20,000 pieces from various Star Wars-themed Lego sets being sold to promote the film. This organ barrel is hand-cranked, and the pieces have been arranged perfectly on the barrel so that they plonk out the notes of the main theme for Star Wars on a keyboard placed nearby. The report notes that the Herculean task of building this gigantic organ barrel was undertaken by professional Lego builders. It’s not something you create while playing around with Lego bricks. Take a look at the source links below for full details, and let us know if you come across any such fun technology.
