Get ready to celebrate 40 years of LEGO Technic

LEGO has posted on their Facebook page this nifty animation teasing us for an upcoming celebration of 40 years of LEGO Technic.

According to its caption, "Wheels are spinning … get ready to celebrate 40 years of LEGO Technic! 🎂🎉🎈 Walk down memory lane with us when we are sending LIVE from the LEGO VAULTS, September 7 at 3pm GMT". You can see when in your part of the world the event is taking place by using a converter such as this one.

The animation is almost as mesmerising to watch as a GBC layout, but I couldn't overlook something: how is the pneumatic switch on the right moving? It's been said that no more sets will be released for the 40th anniversary of Technic, but who knows? Anyway I can't wait for the 7th of September!

UPDATE: Some more details have been revealed a moment ago:
On the 40 years anniversary of LEGO Technic, fans will have the unique chance to get a sneak peek into the LEGO Technic vaults. They will have the chance to take a trip down the memory lane and look back at some of milestones that have happened during the last 4 decades with 3 special guests: Jan Ryaa, the first LEGO Technic designer, Andrew Woodman, Senior Lead Designer on LEGO Technic and Signe Wiese, Culture Mediator at LEGO Idea House.

During the event, the fans will have the chance to ask questions to the guests and even get the chance to see their favorite (unbuilt) models right from the vault’s shelves.
