The Lego Cello looks unbelievably like a real cello, and can also be played. Made by Nathan Sawaya, the fake instrument is the actual size of a non-LEGO cello, but unfortunately does not sound like one.
The video of Sawaya creating the LEGO cello has gone viral and shows how he took brick by brick to make this masterpiece.
Implications - LEGO recreations, parodies and life-sized replicas have been relevant in pop culture for years, but this remarkable cello represents a shift towards inventions that have some semblance of function as well. Innovations that combine playful nostalgia and functionality will surely appeal to the logical consumer that still enjoys an element of fantasy in daily life.
