When Jason Allemann of JK Brickworks set out to build a LEGO mosaic printer, he didn’t just plan to build the mosaics out of LEGO, but the printer as well.
The Bricasso uses the LEGO Mindstorms EV3 to scan an image and then recreates that image in LEGO mosaic using 1×1 LEGO plates. That’s already pretty cool, but the fact that the printer is also built out of LEGO is what really got me.
See it in action after the break.
