A LEGO-powered submarine that actually works is blowing people’s minds

A video of some clever engineering involving LEGO and an assortment of odds and ends – plus heaps of know-how – has got people in awe of the finished product, including us.

It’s the brainchild of the Brick Experiment Channel, which is an Aladdin’s cave of LEGO wonders.

Not exactly a Saturday afternoon project to knock up with the kids, but giving strong fun DIY goals.

Extremely cool. The visual clarity through the flat plexi in the front was actually astounding. This is a great proof-of-concept for a low-cost underwater remote filming rig.

As a qualified Submariner I appreciate the effort and time you put into this build and video. Getting into legos with my kids and a project like this would be so awesome.

This is the most amazing thing I’ve seen on the internet today 🤩 The Captain seems to be having the time of his life! Crusing through those waters with that music in the background almost seemed like it was hyperdrive-ing through space with starfields (the bubbles) passing by.

If anything, Twitter was even more impressed.

Fancy an earworm?

It took 2 years to make this LEGO jeep – and moments to destroy it
