If you have time, check out the actual project in detail HERE. I also love why Apollo created this project. In his words

Lego open MRI is a toy that aims to give hope to help everyone i.e kids, who are curious & anxious. It was designed based on every patients’ suggestions & with patients in mind, to be shown at the earliest possible stage what will happen during MRI to eliminate misconceptions or worries like how far their head will go through, timings etc.


Apollo made a plead to LEGO stating the following

Dear LEGO,

If this idea will be approved, I will use it to be distributed to every hospitals or unit that has patients who are anxious and claustrophobic for a radiology procedure. As MRI radiographer and LEGO lover, patients and I will build confidence to be inspired to be strong and to overcome clinical obstacles and fears. Like a LEGO magnet, its irresistible force will give a positive attraction to patients about the wonders of radiology equipment like DEXA, CT Scan and MRI, open or the conventional type whilst using LEGO bricks. I will endlessly dedicate my whole self, my love for my patients, science and radiography to uplift, encourage and raise awareness to the global arena. It would be my greatest honour and duty to pull and push them to reach new heights and use the LEGO open MRI idea as a tool to be a symbol of hope, to instil courage, confidence to cope and triumph over with their fears.


I love that message! If this project passes though approval, I will definitely buy a set to support the purpose of this set.
