The star of IFA 2013 may just be made out of Lego

This isn't a phone, or a tablet, or any other kind of device, but it is possibly the star of the show here in Berlin at IFA 2013. What it is, is an LTE tower constructed by the folks at Vodafone Germany, entirely made using Lego bricks. Who knows how long it actually took to put together, or how many Vodafone Germany employees were drafted in to put together this gargantuan structure, but it's impressive. Very, very impressive. So I couldn't leave the show without sharing it, though no amount of images could ever truly show how big this thing really is.

So, next time you're putting together a Lego Death Star and thinking it's taking you a long time, spare a thought for the folks who put this together. At the end of the week, someone has to take it down, too.

What do you think? Pretty cool, right?

Cool? Very cool! When I was younger I spent so many hours with Lego. Now me and my girl Sophia are building a life sized C3PO. But if I could do that for my job, I wouldn't have to work and slippery times. A cell tower is HUGE and would take an unthinkable number of bricks. Ye!

Well...did you get a picture of it other than the close up???????

Yes, like maybe a shot with a person beside it so we can see the scale.
