Electronic LEGO Super Mario Mushrooms by VonBrunk
Electronic LEGO Super Mario Mushrooms

Video Demonstration - Tutorial on Instructables


"Electronic LEGO Super Mario Bros. Mushrooms"
- original creations and photography by Baron Julius von Brunk. Technical specs per model: ~300 LEGO pieces, 6 Volts DC (2x 3V CR2032 coin cells), two LEDs, sound: piezo speaker, microcontroller: Atmel ATtiny85 programmed with Arduino Uno.

Using the same design principles and technology as my electronic Invincibility Starmen, I’ve built a new series of interactive LEGO creations with a retro video game theme! Tapping the small tactile buttons on the backs of the mushrooms causes the eyes to blink in sync with melodies generated by Arduino. The green mushrooms play the 1-up sound effect, two of the red ones play a segment of the Overworld theme from Super Mario World, and the third red mushroom plays the airship victory music from Super Mario Bros. 3!

Metal Gods by VonBrunk
Metal Gods
On Thursday October 9th as an early birthday gift, I went to the Barclays Center in Brooklyn to see the Metal Gods themselves… JUDAS PRIEST!! Here’s a diorama I recently built and photographed: I made a few prints of these on photo paper with the intention of getting them signed by the band, but alas, I of course never ran into them. I did, however get a corporate luxury box rather than the general seating area.

Two things turn 30 this year: “Defenders of the Faith” by Priest, and Baron von Brunk.

Electronic LEGO Super Mario Invincibility Starmen
DIY Tutorial - Video Demonstration

Tapping the small button on the back of the head causes the eyes to blink in sync with a tone melody version of the Super Mario invincibility theme, with each musical note assigned to a specific frequency generated by Arduino tone library. The rainbow model’s eyes, however, cycle through multi colors and play the Super Mario Bros. 3 “Coin Heaven” music (song by Koji Kondo).

Technical specs per model: ~300 LEGO pieces, 6 Volts DC (2x 3V CR2032 coin cells), two LEDs (white straw hat; RGB color-changing for rainbow version), sound: piezo speaker, microcontroller: Atmel ATtiny85 programmed with Arduino Uno.

Julius von Brunk
Artist | Professional | Digital Art
United States
This is the official deviantART page of Baron Julius von Brunk, an eccentric multimedia artist in New York City! Baron von Brunk is widely known as a master LEGO craftsman whose work has been published in multiple video game magazines, tech blogs, and has been showcased at an exhibit at Nintendo World Store's flagship location in New York.

Julius is currently employed as a professional graphic designer for a sports promotion company in Long Island, and does freelance graphics for consumer electronics. Aside from being an overall quirky action figure aficionado and mutton chop extraordinaire, Julius is also a freelance burlesque promoter who aims to please the nerd girls of the scene! Join Baron von Brunk in all of his creative endeavors – from custom LEGO brick models to illustrations, paintings, and even promotional material for upcoming NYC events!

Alright, 3rd-person spiel aside. . .

I also own a minifridge. I'm a tall, reclusive, curly-haired, bearded, pale-skinned, mixed-ethnic, bespectacled Libertarian with a foul mouth, a hunger for Asian food and energy drinks, and a lust for short-haired girls with tattoos.

Check out my bizarre and amusing website full of LEGO bricks, art, designs, and sideburns:

"Baron von Brunk's Batmobile Brick Build-a-Thon Bonanza!"

www.facebook.com/events/124080… - Facebook event page

Next Saturday in Times Square, the folks at Ripley's Believe it or Not have commissioned me to do a jolly good performance art event to kick off the premiere of The Dark Knight Rises — I shall be assembling a giant 5-foot Batmobile sculpture entirely from over 12,000 LEGO pieces, from start to finish — hopefully under 24 hours!

If you're in the New York City area, mosey on down to Ripley's on July 21st and watch me make history! Bring me a pizza and some cans of Monster.

… Baturally, you'd agree.
