I used to play with lego bricks myself when I were young, and these
days 15 years later, I have returned to my roots, and is working on
a graphics program that uses this idea, but limited in 2 dimensions.
Its kind of a .werkkzeug clone for Mac. Still alpha quality.

The people that has made .werkkzeug is a team named farbrausch.
They have made some incredible things, such as .kkrieger a 96k FPS.
This is a great tribute to lego bricks. From a programming view point
its some really challenging the stuff these guys are doing.

The lego brick idea are probably also used elsewhere in the software world?

Anyways, this thread is about hardware and the bricks in TFA are nice.
