Lego Zinger Van

Apologies for using a well known catch-phrase from the laughter vacuum that is The Big Bang Theory in the title, but it fitted with today’s creation…

This is a ‘Zinger’, a ’70s phenomenon that we’re too young to understand, but apparently it involved shrinking your vehicle to an improbably small size, but leaving the engine and wheels as they were. Oh, and sticking a girl on the roof.

This brick-built example of the trend comes from Flickr’s Lino Martins, and there’s more to see of his rather neat Zinger Van at his photostream – click the link above to make the jump.

Ralph Savelsberg aka Mad Physicist is living up to his name with his latest build. We’re not sure that the laws of physics allow for what’s going on with this Volkswagen Beetle ‘Zinger’, but whatever the practicalities it looks damn cool!

Physics sure does contain some oddities. And as physicists are usually the smart booky types who use unnecessarily long words combined with maths involving – we suspect – completely made up symbols, we’re not in a position to argue with them.

One such oddity is the principle that a particle can be in more than one place at the same time. Which makes literally no sense, but nevertheless is the foundation for Elliott Feldman‘s lavishly detailed creation, which utilizes this phenomenon to multiply the effectiveness of a transported item.
