Apple Watch Recreated in 800-Brick Nanoblock Sculpture

With just under a month until the April 24 launch date of the Apple Watch, internationally renowned Nanoblock artist Christopher Tan has re-created the Apple Watch in block form in anticipation of the wearable's release next month.

As Tan notes, the sculpture is a 2.6x scale model of the 42mm Apple Watch created from over 800 pieces of Nanoblock, which is a popular building block product in Japan, akin to LEGO. Tan says he's "been a long-time Apple fan" and is "eagerly anticipating the Apple Watch."

Tan has been creating Apple-related Nanoblock structures for a while now, last year debuting a 2,000-piece structure of the Fifth Avenue Apple Store, complete with the iconic glass cube entrance and descending spiral staircase. Tan's creations have earned him spreads in magazines and even award recognition in the Nanoblock company's own spotlight of the best creations and creators using the product.

The bar's pretty low if that's what counts as art.

At least his works looks like something, not like the Rothko that sold for $86Million a few years back.

Lets stop the hate.

I grew up with LEGO. I have a huge bucket of them that i plan on giving my son in a year or two.

That said look at the size of these bricks. They are tiny. Much smaller the LEGO. Does LEGO make a version of their bricks that is this small?

It's been a long time since I played with LEGO blocks. So long that I missed when it became an art form. :D
