Pirate theater automata built from Legos*

This astounding mechanical Lego pirate theater, controlled by Mindstorm/Nextstorm robot Lego, marries the Victorian dramatic clockwork automaton with 21st century cheap computation and precision brick-making. And it's got pirates! Seriously, this one had me scraping my jaw off the keyboard as wave after wave of awesomeness emanated from my browser.

* Oh, I do love calling them "Legos." Legos, Legos, Legos!
