New world record: Tallest LEGO tower


lego_tower_canada.jpgYou know how much we love LEGO here at Tech Digest, so when we heard about a new world record involving the lovely plasticky bobbly blocks, we had to let you know.

Built in Toronto, and overseen by “official LEGO builders from Denmark”, the tower stands 29.3 metres tall and uses 465,000 bricks, and required a crane to finish the job. It took nearly a month to complete.

No word on what’s going to happen to it now, but wouldn’t you just love to push it over?
