I am always looking for inspiration. I look to others projects, videos, blogs and anything else I find interesting. Another way I find inspiration is spending time not working on a project, but on small details like gear assemblies and linear actuators. If I build something I like, I set it aside in a small tray that I store out of the way. It's a great way to solve problems when I just can't get a good answer. If I am stuck, I pull out the inspiration box.

What I have shown is just a few I currently have on my building table. At times when I am stuck, I completely pull myself away from a project and work just on inspirations.
The focus of my blog is Lego and Lego Mindstorms. You’ll see lots of stuff here that is not made by or out of Lego. That doesn't mean that it isn't related. That’s my way of trying to inspire my readers to think about creations that don't have instructions written by Lego. I have a belief that if you are not stretching your mind, your imagination and your abilities you’re not accomplishing much at all.
