Valentine’s Day may all be over but this piece of steam-punk inspired LEGO MOC (My Own Creation) has been making rounds all over social media – not because people are still bitten by the Love Bug, but because of the sheer ingenuity of its design. LEGO Builder par excellence Jason Allemann of JK Brickworks came up with the design and reveals that building his LEGO Clockwork Heart is easier than we might think.
Jason has always been a prolific LEGO builder and designer, and has posted several of his MOCs via his YouTube channel. Other than the Clockwork Heart, Jason is known for his LEGO Piano Player Kinetic Sculpture and his amusingly ‘undefeatable’ Ultimate LEGO Machine (LuuMa EV3) which already racked more than 7M views. Just recently, his Ideas-based LEGO Maze (21305) caught the attention of LEGO execs and that of the general public and is now slated to be the next LEGO Ideas with set to be released anytime soon.
Jason is even kind enough to share a video to explain the mechanisms of the LEGO Clockwork Heart, an LDD (Lego Digital Designer) file, and building instructions to recreate your own Clockwork Heart. The build is versatile enough to be either manually operated or powered by an optional Power Functions M-Motor Block. You can even further customize it by adding more gears to specific places. Jason leaves that for the viewer to experiment upon. Check out his video below and you may download the building instructions here.
