Ha! That's funny, Jim. I just followed the information link and figured out your little joke. To bad though, it is kind of a cool concept...

Cool.
Was I one of the few who immediately spotted this April fools joke :-)

I created most of the bricks myself in SolidWorks to allow me to do more than LDD. I can now also do motion studies or stress analyses.
This also allows me to have items like the gripper from the NXT 1.0 set printed. I made those available in my shop at Shapeways.

Write that...
