A self-replicating LEGO robotic...duck! The DUCK MAKER III (built by LEGO fan Daniele Benedettelli) is capable of building smaller copies of itself out of LEGO bricks (that actually are the very same basic components it is built of). The DUCK MAKER III is shaped as a duck, can be fed LEGO bricks and it also lays eggs! It can build randomly shaped ducks which are 16 times smaller than itself. It’s powered by one NXT programmable brick programmed in LejOS (JAVA) – Check out this clip from the FIRST Championships in St. Louis to see this awesome fan creation in action!
