Sometimes the internet can be an absolute goldmine of content you never knew you needed to see – my latest online obsession is no different. The Pixelbot 3000 made by YouTuber Creative Mindstorms (a.k.a Sten), is a custom-built Lego mosaic 'printer' that builds masterpieces from simple AI prompts in an ingenious feat of engineering and art. 

Gone are the days of believing that Lego is just a children's toy – you only have to look at the countless Lego sets for adults to prove my point. Not only is Sten's work a masterful demonstration of Lego's creative possibilities, but an inspiring innovation in Lego building technology, opening up exciting new artistic avenues.
