Week TechVideo, 2008 #50 - Pneumacube

Not properly fresh news, but another cute construction from leggor3.

"Pneumacube", a LEGO TECHNIC pneumatic cube, that folds/unfolds sequentially.
The pneumatics actuate in sequence for each face, while the air is provided by a regular compressor design, made of LEGO bricks and driven by a PF XL-Motor.

For more images from this creation, take a look at the respective webpage (in German).

Another nice, very well done and imagined construction!

That is insanely cool!

Don't you love it, when someone creates something that has probably never been done, or imagined before? Has anything like this ever existed in the world?

Nice to see a different use of pneumatics + valves, than the usual walkers/etc.

Now.. I wonder if the creator has any instructions.... :)

That was so much fun, seriously I loved it. A very unque MOC. Well done leggor3!

Very cool.
If only it had a purpose...
At first I thought it would fold inwards onto itself, therefore moving.
Now THAT would be even cooler.
Nice usage pneumatics.
