Lego's stress test using ArduinoApril 30, 2013


The question was simple: ”How many times can I assemble LEGO bricks before they wear out?” And Phillipe Cantin found the answer after building a machine to test it: it took 10 days and 37,112 assembling and disassembling actions.

He used an arm moved by a servo-motor, a infrared sensor validating if the lego was off or on, and an Arduino Uno controlling the machine.

"Don’t try this at home. It’s long, noisy and cruel to LEGO bricks"
