Hello, Perifractic here, your friend in Retro The Commodore 64 is the best-selling home computer of all time So when I saw a miniature Lego one, I wondered if it might be possible to build a full-sized To use either as a replacement Lego case with a real motherboard and keyboard in there Or the fully Lego motherboard and sprung mechanical Lego keyboard To make the ultimate executive desk toy! Here’s a short time lapse of the journey that followed And I thank you for joining me on it By the way if you’ve ever thought about building your own PCB Not a Lego one I recommend PCB way They really create people to deal with They’ve been helping me out with an upcoming Commodore project As we all know PCB stands for Perfractic’s Commodore Bricks Thanks for watching! Comment below and Cheerio!

    @Perfractic, Would it be possible to make a lego joystick?

    If you built a 1541 out of LEGO, would it read and write blocks faster than the original?

    Would love a Lego VIC-20/C64. They are my favorite computers. Just can't afford one. Great job on the design!

    Also, did anyone else have a 1541 with “singing” vents on the top? One of the two drives I had would would emit a frequency if you ran your hand over it from back to front (similar to making a crystal wine glass “sing” by running your finger around the edge).

    I’ve never seen mention of this, but maybe it’s just because it’s something lots of people noticed, but never brought up?

    Honestly, for me, your LEGO C64 design with the fully Lego sprung keyboard is top notch and outclassifies the original c 64 by miles! You did a super work!!

    This was an amazing feat of engineering and creativity and that's what LEGO is all about. And you helped the preservation of one of the most important computers in history! You deserve more praise than even my verbosity can express. Well done; very well done.

    The craziest of all C64 related things I saw. Not because of an idea but because of the thinking, time and effort that were put into this. I got tired only from thinking about building it… 😉 And the keyboard that works! Wow… Congrats, Peri!

    The title is very misleading and convinced people that you made a computer purely out of legos. But all you did is make a shell and put a motherboard inside.
