FLOATING ISLAND (USING TENSEGRITY)
With 10,000 support, it is confirmed that it will advance to the 2nd LEGO idea commercialization review review in 2021.FLOATING ISLAND (USING TENSEGRITY)：LEGO IDEAS
A work that expresses an island floating in the air using tensegrity, which became a little boom in 2020. Laputa style castle in the sky.
What is tensegrity?
Simply put, I think it is a design in which hard materials are not connected to each other and the structure is supported only by the tension of the thread material.
In Lego, works with threads in three places were the mainstream, but if you search on Google, there are more complicated and large structures.
Rural above, modern city below
The island is a European walled city style with skyscrapers without color on the base. A healthy and natural island floats above the dark cityscape.
When a town where different layers live in the upper and lower layers appears in science fiction works, it is common to have a modern cityscape where wealthy people live in the upper layer, and devastated land and slums in the lower layer.
The author Seb_E has released many other cute works that are particular about spheres. ..
There are several other design proposals that use tensegrity, but all have a small number of votes. Since the boom is over, there may be few people who are interested in it anymore.
I think it’s difficult to commercialize it, but it would be interesting to have a mini set in collaboration with Laputa.
