LEGO Bricks used in Microfluidics Research

ricecakericecake Maryland, USAMember Posts: 809
A team from MIT are using LEGO bricks in their microfluidics research. Basically, they etch tiny channels in bricks that liquids can flow through, and the modularity of LEGO bricks allow them to be assembled in different configurations. They call it a "Lab on a LEGO".

I haven't read the technical paper but here is a link for that too:
