The following story truly epitomised the idea that necessity is the mother of invention. And in this case, it was a couple of LEGO bricks.
During the circuit-breaker semi-lockdown in Singapore, a primary teacher by the name of Low Xiaoxuan came up with an ingenious idea of building a stand for her phone to be able to stream her lessons online.
This setup enabled her to carry out her lesson plan without having to go through the trouble of holding her phone and worry about a dip in quality.
Low’s ingenuity garnered the attention of Ong Ye Kung, the Republic’s Minister of Education, who lauded her efforts in coping with the circuit-breaker situation.
In the eyes of us geeks this only goes to show that LEGO bricks are definitely always handy, even in a crisis such as the COVID-19 pandemic. And despite not being the best-looking MOC in the market, it certainly did the job for Miss Low.
Marion has a serious RPG addiction. Sometimes it bleeds into real life; he forgets to sleep because he thinks he has a Witcher’s body clock. Forgive him in advance if he suddenly blurts out terms such as “Mind Flayer” and “Magic Missile”, because never once does he stop thinking about his next Dungeons & Dragons game.
