LEGO-themed Wireless Charger Platform Proves Why LEGO Should Build “Fun” Tech Devices

Dubbed the LEGO Brick, this exclusive fan-made creation comes with a wireless charging mat alongside a dedicated platform for attaching accessories like light bulbs, speakers and battery indicators, or build little dioramas out of your own LEGO bricks… Which brings me to a pretty weird revelation and opinion – LEGO should fully get into the gadget and smart stuff industry. LEGO Bricks is the first great example of why…

The LEGO Brick is a fun and quirky wireless charger that builds on LEGO’s promise of endless modularity and customization, but here’s the rub. Tech nerds and geeks also love modularity and customization. We like the idea of ​​creating our own desktops, choosing which components to put in, when to update, or swapping things out whenever we want. This is exactly why we love the PhoneBloks concept so much (I could totally see the LEGO DNA in this concept). In essence, LEGO Brick sits perfectly at the intersection of being a bricknerd and a technerd’s favorite desk accessory. It powers your smartphone, watch or TWS headphones, while providing a square area to snap modules or show off your building skills. The coils under the brick area also power the modules, allowing them to work without extra cables/ports.

LEGO Brick takes the ‘boring’ out of the ‘boring workday’.

What really sets LEGO Brick apart from the sea of ​​existing wireless chargers, most importantly, is its playful appeal. Brick not only allows you to personalize your workspace, it also adds a sense of fun and whimsy to it. You can build scenes from your favorite movies, create bonsai trees or just build small architectural structures. This square area is your canvas for creativity and fun, allowing you to use it for productivity (thanks to the modules) or for play. It helps relieve stress when work gets a little daunting and demanding, and it even serves as the perfect fidget toy when brainstorming. After all, Ed Sheeran wrote the lyrics to his hit song Shape Of You while playing with LEGO bricks.


LEGO Brick isn’t just fun, however. It comes with its own modules that add a layer of productivity and features to the loading experience. The modules are designed to draw power directly from the Brick platform, powering up the minute they are connected to the signature studded board. The three modules shown here are the cuboidal lamp, the minimalist Bluetooth speaker and a nifty battery indicator display. Off the top of my head, other modules could also be things like a plug-in charger for the Apple Watch, chargers for AA batteries, a desktop clock, an OLED photo frame, etc.





While entirely conceptual, LEGO Brick perfectly demonstrates why LEGO is well positioned to be a giant of smart things. Perhaps this would require a bit of collaboration (IKEA collaborated with Teenage Engineering and Sonos to develop their own smart home products), but it would propel LEGO into another area of ​​our lives where a little fun and play would go a long way. I said before that LEGO bricks are not toys, but building blocks to unleash true creativity. Add a little technology to that and we really have a new area for LEGO to grow exponentially!
