Children and families go to the LEGO® World expo in Copenhagen in February 15-18 Denmark, and they will have the chance to make their brick-building dreams take flight with a flight of small drones created by the Human Media Lab at Queen’s University in Canada in collaboration with the LEGO Group’s Creative Play Lab. Visitors will be able to experience and play with new technology combining LEGO® bricks and drones. Children have a chance to arrange Lego elements whatever shape they want. With the help of small sensors and gyroscopes, the system also tracks when the children move, twist and bend their designs.
