A LEGO data centre built with 5772 bricks

Geeks love LEGO. If you need proof, just check out this Lego model built with 5772 bricks, 28 LEGO figures, one LEGO light brick and a metre of fibre optic cable. Yes, it's a data centre.

According to YouTube user eduardotanaka, who uploaded a video of the model earlier this month, the data centre took eight hours to build. Future plans include adding automatic locks using LEGO's Mindstorms NXT programmable robotics system, as well as "facilities and security management with temperature, sound, IR and door sensors".

The model has been posted to LEGO's online gallery.
