LEGOMANIA PART DEUX: #BITIFY YOUR CITY DESIGN CHALLENGE
We announced a very special design challenge this week; Inspired by the work of artist Christoph Niemann and his book I LEGO NYC we are asking you to make a creation inspired by your favorite city in the world using LEGO® + littleBits. Bonus points if you are using our new Brick Adapter. The prize is a collection of some top secret littleBits stash and our judges include a few of our personal heroes in the LEGO-sphere like JK Brickworks, Kyle Li, BrickQueen, Yoshihito Isogawa and Philipp Verbeek.
