LEGO produced their first plastic brick in 1947, but their limitless construction capabilities inspire people to come up with new projects to this day. For example, one clever teacher even uses LEGO to teach math. Bored Panda has selected some of the most functional ones and compiled this list to give you some ideas on how to improve your surroundings with LEGOs. From photo frames to key keepers, these projects can be done by everyone, even those who don't have an engineering degree.
