This App Uses AI to Help You Make New Creations With Old LEGOs

Most LEGO enthusiasts have piles of old plastic bricks that are leftovers from various projects. Finding ideas to use them can be quite challenging, which is why a group of programmers built an app called Brickit.

Brickit is an artificial intelligence-powered app that helps you make new creations with old LEGOs. With the help of your smartphone camera, the app scans the entire pile of LEGO pieces you have at your disposal and identifies them. Then, it provides several ideas on how to use your bricks with detailed instructions.

“We love building, and we love tech, so we made Brickit — an app that scans jumbles of bricks and helps you turn them into starships, dragonflies, pineapples wearing sunglasses, and whatever else you can imagine,” the developers state.

The basic version of the Brickit app is free and available on iOS and Android smartphones. It can recognize around 100 most common LEGO bricks and comes with a database of more than 2,000 ideas. There is also a premium version that can recognize more than 1,600 different types of LEGO pieces.
