Awesome Video Alert: Building a Rolls-Royce Dreamliner Engine from LEGOs

You know, over the weekend we tweeted about the video below, but that just isn't enough to convey its awesomeness. So here we lay it down to start you week off right, since the 3+ minutes of engineers building a Rolls-Royce Trent 1000 aircraft engine out of LEGOs could likely be the best thing you view today.

Here's the deal: Rolls-Royce teamed up with the good people at Bright-Bricks, a company that specializes in building large-scale LEGO models to exacting dimensions and detail. What a dream job, truly. Their task: create the Trent 1000 engine, the very engine found in Boeing's 787 Dreamliners flown by ANA and LAN.

Check out the video, in all its glory:

Our only concern: where will this thing live on? Hopefully Rolls-Royce sticks it in a glass case in one of their corporate lobbies at the very least, though handing it over to the gawking tourists who hit Boeing's Future of Flight Center would be ever better, and we're not just saying that because we desperately want to examine it up close, but because it could hang out next to the Center's actual Rolls-Royce engine already there.
