AI to Sort 2 Tons of Lego Pieces

This is an interesting story that combines AI and LEGO.

Even second-hand Lego isn’t cheap. Bulk unsorted Lego sells for roughly €10 per kilogram (about US $11/kg), boxed sets go for €40/kg, and collections of rare parts and Lego Technic pieces much more.

Consequently, there exists a cottage industry of people who buy new sets and bulk Lego and manually sort all the pieces into more valuable groupings.
The biggest challenge of course was identification.

    Where is one part of my life where I welcome ROBOTS – cleaning the floor.
    Here is my story. For years my Mom says “Please clean the floor from the Lego parts”
    Now, my answer is “Lego will do it!”
