'Toy' car powered by compressed air

A car made from over 500,000 Lego bricks has been taken for a test drive around a Melbourne suburb.

The car is powered by air and can reach speeds of up to 18mph.

The project was crowd-funded and is the brainchild of Australian entrepreneur Steve Sammartino and Romanian technologist Raul Oaida.
