Hello
I'm currently working on a LEGO sorting device desgin , using image processing application to process the image taked by a webcam or RGB sensor. A DC motor controls the cylinder portion of the device to take one Lego block at a time to be sorted. The sorting section consists of stepper motor with a slide to select the right box were the lego block must go. the Lego blocks are sorted by color and size with this device

kind regards,
Lahcen

That sounds awesome. I have boxes of Lego at home and it'd be fun to give this a go!

Do you have a blog post or pictures anywhere?

Awesome idea. As with Jon I have boxes full of unsorted lego (courtesy of 3 children).

I'd be interested to see how you get the arduino to sort accordingly.

Bonus points if you make the sorting machine out of lego!
