I really look forward to being able to replicate things like this in wood or acrylic rather than having to spend the big $ on the necessary Lego. Can’t wait! Such fascinating work.

Disney Research has many amazing projects that you could waste a day going through and a lifetime pining over. They never release any of them.

Here’s that one in greater detail.

The boxilization one is also very interesting. https://www.disneyresearch.com/project/boxelization/ more for maybe a 3d printer than laser cutter, but would be so nice to be able to do.
