If you grew up playing with LEGOs, there's a good chance you spent hours meticulously building impressive multi-colored megastructures that made the original step-by-step sets look like child's play. But a recent video showcases a LEGO engineering marvel that will put even your most elaborate castles or pirate ships to shame -- a vending machine than dispenses 4-packs of Chicken McNuggets.
As the video explains, all you have to do is insert the correct coin and -- boom -- out comes the nuggets and a tub of dipping sauce. A peek inside the contraption reveals some pretty elaborate mechanics, but what do you expect from the same McGenius who brought us such inventions as a LEGO pinball machine, a LEGO snow cone machine, and a LEGO chocolate milk mixer? Obviously, it's not the most practical of devices, but when you combine childhood favorites like McNuggets and LEGOs, it's stupidly hard not to want one.
