A LEGO fan creates a moving Jeopardy! model in homage to the host
Paying homage to the host of the popular game show Jeopardy !, a LEGO fan remembers Alex Trebek in a literally moving model.
Douglas hughes featured the build on his YouTube channel, featuring brick characters from Alex Trebek, Brad Rutter, and James Holzhauer. The model itself is a recreation of the ensemble used in the game show, with a screen showing the show’s logo and representing the four contestants and the host.
Perhaps the most interesting part of the model is its functions. The build is kinetic in that it moves the competitor’s hands to lift the microphones and rotates the host toward the screen, much like they would in the game show. The stands even light up, indicating which competitor responds first.
The entire model uses standard LEGO, Technic, Power Functions and MINDSTORMS EV3 bricks to allow it to move and be programmable to achieve such an accurate Jeopardy! experience as possible.
At BrickNerd, Douglas explains the process of creating this template, including the sketches used to plan its layout. Jeopardy guest host Ken Jennings! even shared his appreciation for the model on Twitter.
The LEGO Group shared their own tribute to Alex Trebek in a recreation of the popular game show.
