While most kids, myself included, spent countless hours with their big bucket of Legos creating forts, car washes or mini mansions, one kid has outdone all of our wildest colored-block imaginations and created an actual working go-cart.
This kid clearly had some assistance from his father, Eric Steenstra, the Dutchman that posted the creation on his tumblr page, and although the go-cart won’t rival anything at Pole Position, it still pretty impressive.
Dubbed “Le-GoKart”, the machine is powered by 48 Lego Mindstorms NXT motors and 16 NXT battery packs. It’s strong enough to hold a 222-lb adult male and has working headlights and taillights, and features nothing but Lego parts.
Check out the video after the jump for a bit of nostalgia and a hint of jealousy.
