Let’s be honest. Developers have begun creating sadistic achievements in order to push whores for the old gamer score into ridiculous tasks. Such measures deserve a geek one-up, and so a dude build a contraption out of Legos to conquer one in Gears 3.

There’s an achievement you can get in Gears of War 3 that can be earned by playing a piano 2000 times. That’s a lot of button pressing, so LEGO builder Guy Himber set to work on a less strenuous solution.
He built this LEGO rig that would both hold his 360 controller and press the required buttons, at a rate of 34 times a minute. This means he was able to “earn” the achievement in around an hour.
