Just what it says - a CNC machine built from Lego!

Even though she said that it was atrocious doesn't mean anything really. Do you know if it is recognized as a word by any of the main dictionaries?

its in the Oxford English dictionary
Definition of supercalifragilisticexpialidocious
adjective: informal
extraordinarily good; wonderful: the only word to characterize Kepler’s discoveries was ‘Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious’ a supercalifragilistic day of fun

Origin: 1940s: apparently a fanciful formation based on super, popularized by the 1964 film Mary Poppins

She said that the sound of it is something quite atrocious, not quite the same thing.

Awesome. I wonder how long it will take for one out of K'nex to be made.

It depends - is there a programmable controller designed for K'NEX, or are you going to have to buy yourself an Arduino?

I have come across on the internet information about "cyber K'nex" which seem to be the K'nex version of lego robotics. I don't have any experience with them and I don't know if they are programable although I think they may be. If not there's always the possibility of hacking the motors with Arduino. One thing which I find may make K'nex CNC dificcult/impossible may be the accuracy that one could achieve using standard K'nex parts. I'm not sure that a mechanism from K'nex could get the proper accuracy in movement to make a practical CNC machine.

Oh wow, that's incredible! CNC machines are great at the worst of times, but with Lego? Wow.
