Plenty of people enjoy coffee and a good many enjoy LEGO too, so it was only a matter of time before the two were combined. The Build-On Brick Mug is a coffee cup covered in studs and holes that attach to LEGO and other building blocks to customize it however you want.

The mug is compatible with LEGO, PixelBlocks, Mega Bloks, KRE-O, or K'NEX Bricks – but you'll have to provide those yourself. The blocks can be combined to customize your cup of coffee any way you want. You could construct an attached plate to hold a doughnut, for example, or work in some LEGO Mindstorms to create your very own robotic coffee mug.

One possible drawback is that the odd shape (along with the risk of having a LEGO minifig end up in your nostril) could lead to spillage. Also, while it has no problem holding hot drinks, the mug is not microwave or dishwasher-safe.

ThinkGeek is selling the Build-On Brick Mug for US$19.99.

Even adults like Legos. This is way cool. It could be a fabulous time sink, but your supervisor might wonder about your worktime effectiveness if the design becomes overly intricate/complex/huge.

OK Interesting idea but I don't like the idea of having a coffee mug not washable. If you put coffee in a container it will stain it regardless of it, which requires the washing of that container somehow. Interesting Idea but don't put coffee or hot chocolate in it; pain in the butt to wash as you'd have to put your coffee cup back together just to wash & clean it.
