Lego: is there anything it can't do?

Well, it can go together to build a working Super-8 film projector:

A fully functional Super 8 Movie Projector I built with Kalle using Lego Technic. The only non-Lego parts are the lens, the reel spindles and the lamp.

The projector uses just two engines and is fully featured with automatic feeding, 24 fps, fast rewind and 120m reel capabilities. A decent LED flashlight makes it pretty amazingly bright. :)
He has, err, film of the working contraption.  Cool.
