This little half-domino shaped/sized squares are actually individual really tiny computers. You build them together to add functionality to whatever pieces you already have.
They each have a bunch of component in them starting with a 20MHz AVR processor and full color OLED screen on the top. Then they have tactile/haptic drivers, a 3-axis accelerometer, built in flash memory, and rechargeable Lithium-Polymer batteries.
For some having their gadgets blend in with everyone else is reason to be horrified for life. Now occasionally, that means they must have the newest gadget money can buy, however, other times it means having one of those quirky underground gadgets. This Homade Lego MP3 Player is one way to make sure you always stand out from the crowd.
Earlier this week when I reported that the upcoming Lego Indiana Jones title would support 4-player co-op, I admit that I had my doubts. I really couldn't picture myself trying to coordinate my actions with three other people in my living room throughout the entire game. Apparently there's no need to worry about it, as the game will only be 2-player.
Technically, it can’t be a lightsaber, because that requires licensing from Lucas Arts and blah blah blah buearocratic BS. Anyways, it’s a “Light Sword” that your Wii remote clips into.
There aren’t yet any proper Star Wars games for which to use this sword with, but there is Lego Star Wars: The Complete Saga. Or you could use it with any other games that have some swording action, like the mythical Fencing 2k8 from EA sports, yeah right.
