Lego QuNeo stand

Old toys and new toys hand in hand; Lego makes for a killer QuNeo stand!
Well, this was something I just had to get out of my system. It’s a Lego stand for my QuNeo. It doesn’t need a lot of explanation: as you can see from the images, it’s a quite versatile little thing; it works quite nicely with the Laundhpad too, and seeing as the QuNeo is the same size as an iPad, well, you can figure out the rest.
The stand is sturdy, and sits remarkably well in my lap too, so it’s great for casual jamming and, of course, if you have an iPad, I think it would be great for that too.
I ran out of black blocks, so I had to use some red ones…
I’d just like to add that hardware manufacturers should always design their products to fit in a Lego grid. The QuNeo is just a little too small/big to fit exactly inside a frame of Lego blocks, so I had to leave a bit of extra space on the sides, which also meant that I ended up with an odd number of knobs on all sides. Remember, guys: you design useful toys. Lego bricks are also useful toys. Useful toys should go hand in hand! 😉
Update – the Launchpad needs love too:
Well, I just couldn’t leave the Launchpad without its own stand, so I went ahead and made another one. And lo and behold: the Launchpad fits EXACTLY inside a Lego grid -it is just that tiny millimetre narrower. Now that’s what I call – if I may go there – intelligent design… 😉 Good on you, Novation!
