A LEGO 1984 Classic Macintosh Built for the iPad

If you’re close to my age, you probably remember the classic 1984 Apple Macintosh computer with the built-in screen. I had one and I worked on one at my first internship. Imagine my delight when I saw this LEGO interpretation (you all know my love of LEGO by now)! Oslo-based Jason Kinsella and Charlotte Bakken are the ones to thank (Thanks!) and these advertising professionals wanted to re-imagine this classic with a modern twist…


And they did just that by incorporating an iPad into the design. Talk about full circle! This Apple mashup shows just how a brand can evolve from its inception to modern times. These LEGO fans created the 1984 computer to scale with just a few simple adjustments to accommodate the iPad.
