Brick 2015 is coming to town this weekend. The Lego-themed event will take place at the Excel conference centre in London's Docklands Dec 11-13. Not only will there be seasonal displays such as a snowman constructed using over 250 thousand bricks, but attendees will also be able to checkout Harry Potter, Star Wars, and Batman-inspired Lego creations. In addition, SmartBrick will be there.
Smartbrick, or SBrick for short, allows Lego enthusiasts to use their smartphone or tablet to remotely operate Lego vehicles such as cars, trucks and trains. The innovative product was funded as a result of a successful Kickstarter campaign. The clever little brick's companion app is compatible with Android, iOS and Windows-powered devices.
The SBrick is easy to install and the app is easy to configure. Up to 16 SBrick receivers can be controlled from the same smartphone or tablet, and there are plenty of tutorials on Youtube that will guide users through the installation and setup process. There are also plenty of videos that show SBrick-powered Lego vehicles in action, and a thriving online community.
The really good news is that we will be attending the event, and offering a 10% discount to anyone who places an order during the show (the normal price is £40+vat)! Tickets can be purchased from the official Brick 2015 website, but they are subject to availability so best to buy one in advance to guarantee entry.
SBrick and the WEB3//IOT team look forward to seeing you there!
