Brick Experiment Channel or BEC is a YouTube channel dedicated to building and experimenting with Lego Technic bricks. The building materials are not always limited to Lego as they often include electronics and other elements. BEC has created climbing machines, submarines, hoists, gearboxes, wheel spinners, and a drone to name a few.
I’m a Finnish middle-aged guy and I run the channel by myself. I have worked for over 10 years as a software engineer. This video creation hobby combines the things I have always liked – physics, engineering and visual arts.
I buy my Lego parts from www.bricklink.com. I don’t sell my creations (with one exception).
You can see my creations on YouTube. The purpose of this WordPress blog is to share information I couldn’t fit into the videos. Sometimes complex things are best explained in textual form, rather than visually.
These social media I own:

Hi,I hope you are doing well. I am a mechanical engineering professor in Puerto Rico, I am fascinated with your work. I was wondering if you can help me develop some kind of project for my student.
Thanks a lot
Hi Daniel. Thanks for the kind words. I’ve heard that at least the hoists, wheel spinners, climbers and submarines have been used by students and teachers based on the emails and comments I receive. I don’t have building instructions for any of my machines, so you’ll have to make the detailed designs yourself. One time-consuming and costly hurdle is buying the Lego parts from http://www.bricklink.com or http://www.brickowl.com and waiting for 1-2 weeks for them to arrive. That is pretty much all the help I can give. I can answer if you have any specific questions about some build.
Hi, I’m a student of robotics engineer and I wanted to congratulate you on your projects. If I’m not mistaken, the videos don’t show all the lego pieces you used. Would it be possible to ask you for the complete list of lego pieces you used in project Lego submarine 4.0?
Thanks for reply.
Sure. The list of Lego parts is now on the conclusion post. Link: https://brickexperimentchannel.wordpress.com/2022/07/14/rc-submarine-4-0-conclusion-10-10/
Are there any large kits that would have most of the parts you use in your builds?
Maybe the Liebherr Excavator set 42100. It is the biggest Technic set available now and it contains 7 motors. Also, a few years ago there was Lego Education 9686, a small set, intended for different machines like I do. But they don’t produce that anymore.
First thought: California, silicon valley, but its Finland, fascinating, not only the sub but also the way of making the video !
How do you feel about freebooting? Would you like us to report it to you so you can file a copyright claim? For example: https://twitter.com/MeteoBarrufet/status/1548549723677757440
If it gets millions of views and doesn’t give credits. Then I’m thankful if you send me a link. That is a good example, I made a copyright claim of it.

Been watching your videos for a while now, and frankly, I can’t get enough of ’em. I recently had an idea I would love to see you tackle. It may be beyond your expertise, but I was thinking a mock Cassette deck (or one that plays a song via color coding, if you have a Mindstorms brick) would be fabulous! If you think you could, I would love to see your take! Best wishes!
Thanks. Yes, each color being one note, you could create simple melodies like Jingle Bells or Star Wars: The Imperial March. That’s a good idea.
I’m over at Lego next week taking to some people I know there about experimentation. I’m definitely going to mention this project.
Thank you for sharing all of your hard work.
A friend recently shared your channel with me and I’ve really enjoyed the videos. Lego Benny at 100g gave me a good laugh! I also really enjoyed your post on your YouTube earnings. It’s hard to get transparency on the business of YouTube creators and you provide a great example of how it can be done (assuming you have great content).
I am not sure if this would be the right place to tell you about this information, but I have found a shameless repost of your “20 Mechanical Principles combined in a Useless Lego Machine” video on YouTube.
Here’s the link to the video:
And the link to the channel:
I wish you good luck dealing with this shameless thief
Thanks for the tip. I reported it.
Just wanted to tell you that someone reposted the ” 20 Mechanical Principles combined in a Useless Lego Machine” on linkedin(I’m going to guess without your permission).
Is it possible to cooperate with you to distribute your products worldwide as educational products ? thanks a lot.
Hello! I just wanted to let you know there is a creator on YouTube that is uploading your content as their own. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YZ6mdnEeJXI. They appear to also be uploading that footage as their own under the name @be.maker here on TikTok. I hope you are able to resolve this since I’m sure you don’t want someone stealing your footage and claiming it as their own.
Saw your latest kinetic sculpture vid on YT
I’m glad that my creations have inspired you.
Very nice composition. Thanks for mention me. Good modifications…now everything ist 100%Lego
Hello Diamabolo. You have a great collection of kinetic Lego sculptures on your YT channel. For anyone interested: https://www.youtube.com/@diamabolo
ps. I sent an email to you to discuss things further.
This channel is one of the most amazing channels I have ever seen; you have achieved 3M subscribers. Congrats!
