Now hear this! Now hear this!

Listen up! Here’s something you don’t see every day — a cross-sectional model of the human ear, built from LEGO bricks. The work of South Korean builder Jin Kei, this is a large-scale sculpture with (as far as I can tell) an excellent level of accuracy detail. I’m a particular fan of the shaping of the Inner Ear organs in dark blue, and the rendering of the skull cross section in white with red dots to represent the honeycomb-like structure of bone.

I’d like to see more large-scale medical LEGO sculptures please. Could someone build me a model of a spleen?

It’s always nice when you can mix business and pleasure… Canadian anesthesiologist and LEGO fan Lucie Filteau spends much of her time next to a GE Aisys C2 anesthesia machine, so she decided to build a LEGO version of it to raffle off at a recent fundraiser. You can compare it to the real thing, and even see it in action – LEGO style!
