The Bricasso Prints Out LEGO Mosaics

Rebecca OConnell

Jason Allemann from JK Brickworks has created a printer that pops out delightful LEGO mosaics. Bricasso—which is also made of LEGO bricks—can look at images and recreate them with 1 x 1 pieces. 

Using a LEGO Mindstorms EV3 to scan images, the gadget can identify colors and print them out with corresponding LEGO bricks. The images are stored in the machine's memory, so users can print multiple designs without rescanning. The flat images are only limited to what someone can pixelate on a computer.
