Artist Nathan Sawaya has constructed an oversized model of the BlackBerry Tour 9630 smartphone using nothing but Lego blocks.

A New York-based artist, 36-year-old Sawaya was commissioned by RIM to build the replica. He is no stranger in the smartphone-Lego game, having built a giant Lego iPhone back in 2008.

"I was commissioned to create a giant Blackberry Tour 9360 smartphone out of Lego bricks. But there was a catch. It couldn't be just a static replica; it needed to have a video screen that really worked. Fun," wrote Sawaya on his blog

"After some trial and error, I embedded a flat screen TV into my brick sculpture to get the effect of having working video in this oversized brick smartphone."

The phone stands at around 1.5 metres tall and comes with a working LCD screen. It will be making a tour of the US as Sawaya takes his "art of the brick museum show" on the road.

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

Brother PT-P750W

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

The Brother MFC-L8900CDW is an absolute stand out. I struggle to fault it.

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.
