A LEGO Jeopardy! Kinetic Sculpture Built in Tribute to Alex Trebek

 |  |  |  |  |  |  |  February 3, 2021

We all pay our respects in our own way, and LEGO builder and YouTuber Douglas Hughes decided to construct this kinetic Jeopardy! sculpture in honor of the late, great Alex Trebek. Featuring contestants Ken Jennings (most wins), Brad Rutter (most money won), and James Holzhauer (most records), the figures move and buzz in, complete with light effects. I’ll take Best Gameshow Host Of All Time for $1,000, Alex.

The methods of how Douglas was able to achieve the desired movement from the characters with minimal moving parts is pretty clever, which he shows at the end of the video, and discusses in detail in his build diary available on Bricknerd. I wish I had that sort of ingenuity, but I’m just happy if I remember to put my socks on before my shoes.

A fitting tribute to Trebek for sure. Me? I’ll pay my respects to Alex the only way I know how: continuing to yell completely wrong answers at the television from 7:00 to 7:30 PM nightly.
