Fossil Fuel Free...Lego car?

Driving On Air. Raul Oaida, a Romanian inventor who put together the most intriguing Lego dream ever. In 20 months, he used half a million pieces of Legos to build a car that is powered by the most interesting air engine with 256 Lego pistons!

He dreams to be a future astronaut. He could definitely be a resourceful Mars pioneer.

Lego bricks probably cost more per kilogram than an actual car.

$20,000 raised via Twitter.

So 20,000 people who said "I'd pay a dollar to see that"

Pretty cool that you can think up some wacky idea and have people contribute to see it happen. Before the internet it was only millionaires that could do wacky stuff like that.

I'd like to raise $20k for a Play Doh car.

It would be sweet for aero experiments.

Play Doh? What about adobe?

I cannot find this on YouTube. Here is Yahoo, which keeps buffering: https://screen.yahoo.com/adobe-000000741.html
Hulu worked for me: Watch Saturday Night Live: Adobe Online | Hulu
