28/01/1958 The Lego company patents the design of its Lego bricks

Although the modern Lego brick design was patented on this date, it took another 5 years to find the right material for it. Since then, the Lego bricks can be interlocked with each other, even with the current ones. Six pieces of 2x4 bricks can be combined in 915,103,765 ways.
