Playing the Star Wars Theme on a LEGO Barrel Organ

by Kenny Hoeschen

Some enterprising LEGO builders and Star Wars fans in Germany decided it would be a good idea to build a giant barrel organ out of LEGO that could play the theme to Star Wars. 20,000 LEGO bricks and XXX hours later,

The barrel organ contains four distinct Star Wars worlds on it’s perimeter — the ice planet Hoth, the deserts of Tatooine, the forest moon of Endor, and Darth Vader’s own Death Star. And when the barrel spins, the bricks activate mechanical sensors that, in turn, strike the keys of a built-in keyboard and — voilà! — the Star Wars Main Theme. The result is mesmerizing and delightful!
