Is there anything that can’t be made with LEGO? A very talented dude named Friedemann Wachsmuth built a fully functional Super 8 movie projector from LEGO Technic pieces and not much else. The only non-LEGO pieces are the lens, lamp and film reels.
He says, “The projector uses just two engines and is fully featured with automatic feeding, 24 fps, fast rewind and 120m reel capability. A decent LED flashlight makes it pretty amazingly bright.”

Check out the video for some brilliant shots of this plastic masterpiece in action. Friedemann has since improved the film pulldown mechanism to stabilize the image, but even in these shots it’s an impressive achievement. I can’t wait for a 35 mm version!
