Lego BricksTurn 50

Yes, we know you may not think LEGO relates to tech - but without LEGO we'd have no LEGO Star Wars games, right?  Or MINDSTORMS.  Monday was the 50th anniversary of the patenting of the LEGO.

The Lego company plans to celebrate the anniversary with, among other things, a worldwide contest to discover the best kid Lego builder. Each country will have its own national champion, Lego promises, and these lucky kids will get the right to come to headquarters in Denmark to fight it out for the world title.

Even Google recognized the day, revamping their logo for the anniversary, as they typically do on a special occasion.  Let's not forget, LEGO MINDSTORMS turns 10 years old this year as well.
