Sighted at IFA: Vodafone's giant Lego LTE tower

We've been hitting the show floor at IFA 2013 today, and one of the more unique things we've come across stands in the center of the Vodafone Germany booth. It's a giant LTE tower made of Lego bricks. A lot of Lego bricks. It's also supporting Lego radio dishes, though alas Vodafone reps tell us it's not a functional tower, merely a decorative monument to the carrier's LTE service. Now, if only visitors to the country could actually use that service...

We've got a couple more pics after the break.

  • wonder how long it took them to build that? I can just imagine employees working night and day, days before IFA going, man, when is this going to be built....ugh.
  • Depends it was either 350 hours for an adult to build or 6.5 hours for an 8 year old Posted via Android Central App

  • I'd probably never play with LEGO's again if I had to help build that one. Building a LEGO Death Star on the other hand... :p
  • I had a ball building Darth Vader's flagship, The Executor Super Star Destroyer out of Lego. At 3,152 pieces and over four feet long, it's a beast.
  • Legos are maddening. I did the Y-wing and it was as hard as a MG Gundam kit..well almost. Thats an impressive LTE tower. Maybe they will make a Lego Phone Wars game and Verizon can be the evil empire! Posted via Android Central App
