Here’s something different from LEGO Ideas. Other than the usual product ideas submitted for review, the contest platform also hosts numerous building competitions focused on a particular set, theme or objective. One such contest that takes its cue from a newly released set is the Build An Epic Ride for the Future building contest that is based on the LEGO Creator Expert Harley-Davidson Fat Boy (10269) set. Following the launch of this contest, comes another LEGO Ideas contest that celebrates LEGO’s innovation in enhancing play experiences. Utilizing LEGO’s brick and voice technology, fans can now submit their most creative entries that show how these new innovations can be actually realized. But unlike previous competitions in the contest platform, this one does not require you to build anything.
Dubbed as Share Your Most Creative Ideas On Fun LEGO Voice Experiences, this contest challenges LEGO fans and technogeeks to come up with their most original ideas in utilizing LEGO’s brick and voice technology in fun and meaningful ways.
Imagine if you could talk to your LEGO® models and get them to do fun stuff with you, or for you. In this contest, we challenge you to come up with creative and innovative ideas on how the LEGO brick and voice technology could be combined in fun ways. Maybe you’d like to have a LEGO remote control car that you control with your voice or a LEGO house where you control the lights by talking to it? We want you to think out of the box, into the future, and describe and visualize your idea with text and drawing.
If you read the above contest description carefully, you will notice that this contest does not require you to submit an actual build (either using physical bricks or digital renders) and even encourages you to describe your idea in writing supplemented by simple and clear illustrations. As mentioned in the contest rules:
You are welcome to also include a brick-build model representing your idea, but this is not a requirement and will not influence the judging. If you choose to do so, you can do it using physical bricks or by using a digital building tool such as LEGO Digital Designer. You’re welcome to use image editing tools, such as Photoshop, to enhance your photos/presentation.
3 winners will be selected by a panel of judges, with each bringing home the following LEGO sets that feature LEGO’s Powered Up tech, including the recently introduced LEGO Disney Train (71044).
You can submit your entries on or before October 17, and be sure to read all the contest rules so you will be properly guided. How do you think we can best make use of LEGO’s brick and voice technology? Be sure to drop us a comment and share your coolest idea over at LEGO Ideas.
