This Android Lego project needs your support

If you follow the Android space closely then chances are good you’ve come across the Lego Cuusoo Android Project these past few days.  If you haven’t then let us give you a quick primer: You need this in your office, bedroom, dorm, etc.  It, like Reese’s Peanut Butter and Chocolate, is a match made in heaven.

Marc Young created a mockup Android/Bugdroid character using Lego’s Digital Designer and then later turned it into a kit (200+ pieces) for himself.  Now he wants to turn this into an officially supported Lego project.  But he needs your help.

I am trying to get 10,000 supporters in order to get consideration for Lego to make this model I designed as a set.  There seems to be a lot of buzz about it in the Android community on Google+ but that has slowed to a trickle in the last day.  I’m hoping that more media coverage will help spark more supporters for this project.

How do you help?  

Essentially, you just need to give it your approval and say, “Yeah, I would like that.”  It doesn’t cost you a penny to pledge support, however it does ask you how much you’d be willing to pay for it.  Marc estimates that it would run about $30, but might actually be less.  The current tally is just under 3,500 but needs to get to 10,000 before it goes any further.

Head to LEGO CUUSOO and show your support for this project.  It takes less than five minutes and won’t cost any money.  Until it becomes reality and you buy some for your besties.
