How many times can you assemble two Lego bricks together before they wear out? Phillipe Cantin decided to find out.

The automated testing process lasted ten days, and the bricks lasted 37,112 repeated assemblies and disassemblies before they failed.

Impressive stuff. Phillipe now intends to build a faster machine to test different types of Lego bricks. (via The Arduino Blog)
