LEGOs are a solid. That’s pretty much indisputable. But through the power of computer simulation they don’t have to be, and one talented animator on Reddit has cooked up a handful of animations that turn hundreds of simulated blocks into moving waves and splashes. They’re absolution hypnotizing.
Created by Rexjericho, these awesome animations are made using a fluid simulation program Rexjericho also developed. That part of it does the math, and then when you plug the results into Blender—an open-source computer animation program—you can get results in the form of very convincing waves of LEGO.
