I have consciousness. I am alive. I am…LEGO? Next week we'll get to see Neill Blomkamp's latest sci-fi endeavor, Chappie, hit the big screen. Sharlto Copley voices an artificially intelligent robot who promises to be the source of a technological revolution. As he absorbs the world around him, he becomes more humanlike, for better or worse. While you won't be able to get your own robot like Chappie anytime soon, maybe you can try to make your own little LEGO version of the robot like master builder Eric Tsai. He's a cute, small building brick recreation of the robot, even appearing to have eyes thanks to a small piece.
You can still watch the latest trailer for Chappie right here.
Every child comes into the world full of promise, and none more so than Chappie: he is gifted, special, a prodigy. Like any child, Chappie will come under the influence of his surroundings – some good, some bad – and he will rely on his heart and soul to find his way in the world and become his own man. But there's one thing that makes Chappie different from anyone else: he is a robot. Chappie is the third film written and directed by South African sci-fi auteur Neill Blomkamp, following up his films Elysium and District 9 previously. The script was co-written by Terri Tatchell, based on Blomkamp's short Tetra Vaal. Filming took place down in South Africa last year, with a cast including rappers Die Antwoord and Hugh Jackman. Sony Pictures has Blomkamp's Chappie set for release starting on March 6th next week. Pretty cool?
