BugDroid LEGO idea needs only 200 more supporters to become a reality

Want to help out on making the next big Android-related product a reality? If you don’t remember, we reported about a LEGO Cuusoo idea that featured the BugDroid, or the Android robot, as a possible build that the fine folks at LEGO could bring out. LEGO Cuusoo is a site that allows the community to vote on build ideas that can turn into real products with enough support. The goal is to get 10,000 supporters, and once it hits that milestone LEGO will work to put it into production.

Well, if you take a look at the project today it seems we need just under 200 more people (as of the time of this writing) to put their names down and get this baby rolling. That’s quite a long way to come since we first heard about the project in August 2012, so it would be a shame if we couldn’t get past the finish line at this point.

LEGO Cuusoo is different from Kickstarter, a crowd-funding website where users pledge their own funds to get projects rolling — all you need to give up here is the time it takes to sign up and hit the big, green “Support” button on the right side of the page.

Let’s see if we can’t get a couple hundred more stamps of approval for this exciting project — our desks are just dying for yet another Android ornament. Head here if you want to pitch in a minute or two to help the LEGO-loving Android community get the next big thing in building blocks.
