Matt Reed of redpepper wrote on his post,

 

So, what if I built a Facebook Like button out of Legos? What if I made it light up every time someone liked redpepper's Facebook page? Is that even possible? Yes.

Using the recently released Facebook Graphs API that returns requests for "Like" info and the O-S physical computing hardware Arduino, Reed slapped some bricks together and wrote a script with the intention of having the Lego sculpture light up each time someone liked the RedPepper Facebook Fan Page.

 

That didn't work out that well, so Reed set it to Lil' Wayne's Facebook Fan Page.

 

That worked considerably better.

 

Don't forget to check out the video of the creation of the object, with a sick "pixellated" remix of Kanye West's "All of the Lights".
