Nerds. They’re an ingenious bunch. Check out this amazing and fully functioning LEGO Green Lantern power battery. Created by Jon Lazar using RFID technology, Lazar has constructed a life size LEGO power battery that is able to communicate with his Green Lantern ring.

According to Jon in an interview with ComicsAlliance, the power battery had undergone a few design changes namely with the handle:

“When building the power battery, I veered from the actual design in two places. The first is the handle. Hal Jordan lifts the lantern with a handle that runs off its sides, but the weight of Lego and the lack of strength of the handle seemed like a poor idea in case someone got the idea lift it by the handle. The second design change was to add a Green Lantern symbol in the front of the Lantern so it would glow when the lights fade in and out.”

Concerning future plans, Jon says, “I do plan to build more comic book “props” out of Lego and am currently trying to decide what will be next. Since I’ve done a major DC one, I think a Marvel related one is likely to be next.”

Check out Lazar’s demo video below with the recite of the entire Green Lantern’s oath!!
