Google’s BugDroid has the Chance to be a LEGO Product, it Just Needs Your Support

A very creative person over at LEGO’s CUUSOO site, has posted a project that simply warms our hearts. Through the LEGO Digital Design site, GLHTurbo was able to order the parts needed, then create a strikingly awesome looking Bugdroid character. “I did some searching and couldn’t find any really good Android Lego builds so I decided to build one myself,” he explained on the project’s homepage. 

The CUUSOO site is for individuals to post their ideas that they think LEGO should mass produce. If a project gains enough supporters (like Kickstarter minus the money), then the company green lights it. According to the creator, it took 205 bricks (with custom Android paint) costing about $30 to build in total. Completely worth it.

To support the project and to make sure LEGO sees it, all you have to do is create an account or sign in using Facebook and explain how much you would pay and how many you would buy. It’s not a commitment to buy, but it gives the company an idea if it would be successful for them or not.

Would you buy one of these adorable Bugdroid kits if they were made available to the masses?

    It’s a well executed Lego model. There is already a brisk market in Android mini collectibles with different themes, as well as cases, keychains etc. The fun thing about this is that it appeals directly to the types of people that love their Android device because of the ability to tinker with it, install custom ROMs, and make it their own. They are just the types that would rather build a Lego model of their mascot, than just buy one off the shelf. Besides, who wants to build an apple with a bite taken out of it???
    Support this project if you would want one!

  • Curtis Black

    hell yeah!

  • Tyler Chappell

    Even though I am not a huge Lego person, I could see myself owning one of these if it’s priced right.

  • Marc Young

    I would like to thank DroidLife for this write up on my Lege Cuusoo Android Project and all of the people here that have supported the project so far. Just one correction to the article, I did not use any custom paint, that is a standard Lego colour called Lime Green.

    • TechJeeper

      You rock Marc! Thanks for putting this project together!

  • Matthew Merrick

    as a loyal TFOL, and an android phanboy, i think this may be the coolest thing EVER

  • master94

    One more thing Android will have that apple won’t. Nice.

    • TechJeeper

      Looking at the other projects, there is a “Modular Apple Store” with nearly 4k current supporters, we need to beat them! Although much like the Apple App Store, it can boast larger numbers at this time, but if you look it’s been active since 3/1. Android reigns supreme in the statistical increase game yet again!

  • Raven

    Heck yes and supported!
    I grew up building Legos with the original Space series and I now own and love multiple Android devices, so it is a perfect fit.

  • Trevor

    This is awesome!

  • Finire

    Awesome… But knowing Lego, it’ll be $149.99 if they put this together as a package.

  • MTPenguin

    Cannot support as it requires me to allow some ad site to display…. B-(

    • r0lct

      I have adblock and was able to do it…

    • TechJeeper

      Apparently you have never ran – or don’t run – a website. Ad-block is useful for some cases, but I see most sites as a free service provided to me, and I like to support the creator/owners of the sites, and it’s hard to blog/post/research if your starving.
