Brickit

Jason Kottke (also: David Pogue, Hacker News):

A new iOS app called Brickit has been developed to breathe new life into your old Lego pile. Just dump your bricks out into a pile and the app will analyze what Lego bricks you have, what new creations you can build with them, and provide you with detailed build instructions. It can even guide you to find individual pieces in the pile. View a short demo — I’m assuming they’re using some sort of AI/machine learning to do this?

This is a great idea. I wasn’t able to really test it out because most of our bricks are Duplo, which it doesn’t support. It was able to count the loose Lego bricks but didn’t have any suggestions for what to make with them.
