Today's model (a reader submission) is a clever sculpture of a stargate from the Stargate sci-fi franchise. For those unfamiliar with the franchise, the basic idea is that various people, aliens, etc can walk through an activated "stargate" and end up in another time and place defined by the settings on the first stargate. It's a sort of intergalactic travel device. This rendition of a stargate in LEGO® parts uses a bit of cheating to get the lighting just right, but otherwise is completely made of LEGO® parts. An RCX is used to even turn the inner circle here the same way that the ones in the franchise work. The details here are great, too - make sure to have a look at how those large circles were constructed.
