Lego bricks can tend to be a problem at times, especially if you have accumulated a huge pile of the plastic blocks and have no idea what to build. However, there is an app that can help solve that issue. Brickit uses an AI-powered camera to rapidly scan the pile of bricks and then suggest things you can quickly make.
Dutch entrepreneur Alexander Klöpping tweeted a video that shows how Brickit works. Get your stock of Lego bricks, spread it on the floor, open the app and then let it scan what you have. Seconds later, the app, which works incredibly fast, delivers you options you can choose and construct, without worrying about what to look for from the huge collection of Lego bricks.
On Instagram, Brickit highlighted how the app works, explaining even more about its functions. After scanning the bricks, you choose the tiny project you want to build from scratch. The app then asks you to follow a step-by-step building process.
To make the process even easier, the app does not just mark the bricks you need for a particular project but also tells you where they are in your heap of Lego pieces. Once you have constructed something, you can share it with other users on the app.
This blew the minds of Lego enthusiasts on Twitter.
“This is why I love tech,” tweeted user @Nesrin_haji.

Banjo and I just tried this new Brickit app that scans your lego and gives you a list of things you can build, with instructions. So great! https://t.co/NjDo7bxfqf

Interestingly, Brickit has been developed by a group of fans and has no official affiliations yet. On its website, the company said BrickIt is only available for iOS for now, but it will be available for Android soon.
