This Kinetic Lego Sisyphus Both Impressive And Depressing [Video]

Jason Allemann of JK Brickworks utilized a Disney Research project that automatically calculates all the mechanical links necessary to create realistic human motions to create an impressive kinetic Lego sculpture of the tragic Greek figure Sisyphus.

As the former king of Ephyra, Sisyphus was self-aggrandizing and deceitful, and was condemned to roll a giant boulder up a hill for all eternity—only to watch it roll back down in perpetual failure.

As you’ll see in the video below, Lego Sisyphus’ punishment is to never move the boulder anywhere. It’s pretty relaxing to watch, unless it reminds you of your own life.
