Not yet TECHNIC, but...
... like in "Building inside a Polybag" or "Speed Building" contests, PLUG members thought what if... we try to innovate and introduce something new!?
It ended into a new class of social building game or activity, with LEGO.
It calls "LEGO Blind Building" and the players will have to build a small sized LEGO set, without actually seeing its parts. All you must do, is to search and assemble them into the model, by finger touch.
It was done for the first time, at PLUG biggest annual event (Lourinhã 2009*) and we invited Jan Beyer (LEGO Community Development) to participate, with some PLUG members. And he immediately agreed to join the fun.
Wish I've remembered in time to do it with a small TECHNIC set, like 8259 or 8256. But we should have gathered a few of those sets before the event start.
Sure at the next chance, we won't miss it.
*) PLUG held its largest public event this year, between last 27th Apr and 3rd.May at Lourinhã (Portugal).
It received over 25.000 visitors and it was a huge success. Larger than anyone here could have imagined.
