Researchers at MIT Are Using Lego Blocks to Plan Cities


Researchers at MIT have come up with an innovative way to revolutionize urban planning. It’s called CityScope. It’s a series of interactive tools that can be used to solve problems in cities all around the world — from bus routes in Boston to the refugee crisis in Europe. Their unlikely favorite tool? Lego blocks.
