Somebody develops all of those LEGO kits that kids clamor for – it might as well be you, right? With LEGO’s new Cuusoo, brick fanatics everywhere have the opportunity to create a project and see it transformed into a product for the masses. Builders share their ideas online and other Cuusoo users vote on it. When a project achieves 10,000 supporters, the folks at LEGO will review it for a chance to become an official LEGO product. Cool beans, right? But there’s more. If your project is produced, you’ll earn royalties on the product – 1% of the net sales.
The site is still in ‘open beta’ but this Minecraft project submitted by Mojang has already reached the 10,000 vote threshold – and it did so in just 48 hours. It’s currently in the review stage, but who knows? Maybe we’ll be able to pick up this Minecraft set next Christmas.
