Lego Google and Lego animation exhibit

Two cool lego links before I go to bed.

First, the Google Talk team have made lego Google logos. Pretty good. They use the term "legos", which is frowned upon by the Lego company (for fear that it'll become a generic term and lose its brand status), but I think it's quite widely used in the states.

Second, and perhaps more interesting, Creative Machines have a lego animation exhibit, which uses some baseboards positioned around a slotted mirror to achieve a Zoetrope-type animation effect. This looks so much fun, and would be quite educational for kids I imagine. Hopefully the new Science Museum Launchpad gallery will be full of fun things like this when it opens next year.
