Student Creates LEGO Helmet So You Can Listen To Comics

Lego-Helmet-Book-Reader

A student in product design at the University of Dundee in Scotland, Robson created the toy with his own memories as inspiration. He said:

When I was young I played with LEGO a lot and all I used to read was the comic stories in LEGO Club magazines, I’d like to give something back to them as they helped me learn to read… I’ve been looking at what I enjoyed in my childhood to apply to new ideas and solutions of today.

By inserting the LEGO-brick USB into a slot in the helmet, the lucky kid wearing it can follow along with the comics, games, and puzzles in the subscription-only magazine.

Our only question is, when can we order the adult-size version?

    Does slapping an MP3 player on a go-cart helmet count as “inventing”?  Even if you slap a popular brand name on it?
