My small Contribution to the LEGO World 2013 GBC

This is the first year that LEGO World (Netherlands) will be held in Utrecht instead of Zwolle. In the blog post I created last April, entitled Prototypes for the GBC at LEGO WORLD 2013 a working prototype of the Archimedes’ Screw is shown. After seeing that this would work I have ordered a lot of mostly transparent bricks as shown below:

With those see-through bricks I created this crystal column that rotates the same way the prototype did:

A final test spin at my desk at home and this week it will be placed between the other Great Ball Contraption (GBC) modules to be displayed and (hopefully) working 7 hours a day during 7 days:
