    K'NEX & LEGO Creations

    I love K'NEX. It is incredibly useful on top of being very entertaining! I created this Wii Remote Rack because I did not like having my remotes being banged up in other places (we used to hang them by their straps on nails in the wall).

    They sit in our bookshelf near the couch for quick access.

    Here is a side view of the design.

    Here it is without the remotes.

    Here is my nunchuk hanger. I need better ideas for this.

    They just hang there... :p

    I left the original stand at my parents' place in Washington. :(

    It's a pretty nifty replacement. The colors aren't bad either!

    Thats cool, but it looks like they could fall of there pretty easily.

    Which direction would they fall? I assume you are referring side-to-side. It takes a good shake to slip out of there. If I make the parallel rods any farther apart, the remote just about falls right through. :(

    k'nex creations are really sturdy and stable, in my Geometry class we had to make a 4"in by 12"in bridge and then we would stack books on top of it. Our bridge held 48 Geometry books. Thats damn heavy. and dude thats an awesome stand. Repped

    yeah, unlike legos, which are about as sturdy as a soufflè.

    I'm no densityologist but I'm pretty sure legos are much more sturdy.

    Only problem is, if I ever had any K'NEX they're long gone, I think I have a box of lego somewhere though, I may try and make a DS Lite holder.

    OMG. Buzz is from Rexburg, Idaho. I've been there! Rexburg is the place with the big white R on the hill isn't it. When our family went to America in 2001, we stayed at Mum's penpal-of-25-year's house is Boise. We were all going to Yellowstone and I distinctly remember going through Rexburg.

    Back on topic, I made a sort of make shift Wiimote holder out of K'nex before I made my proper Game/Wiimote/Nunchuk stand.

    Lego is definately more dense but it is very easily pulled apart, cracked apart and Lego does not connect together nearly as well as K'nex does.

    If your legos fall apart it's because you suck at putting them together.

    You're quite the craftsmen, repped for your hard work.

    Thanks Matt.


    Yeah well that too. :lol: The normal brick style of Lego like Maniacal Maniac used, I am hopeless at putting it together, it just collapses. Of course Lego Technic, the stuff I always use for school robotics now, is very, very strong and should never fall apart if you put it together properly.
