The World’s First Universal LEGO Sorter @Raspberry_Pi #PiDay #RaspberryPi
Sure, you’ve got your LEGO sorters that can sort the pieces that are kinda similar. But what about a LEGO sorting machine that can sort every single LEGO piece, including wheels, gears, connectors, and everything else. Here’s more from Daniel West via Toward Data Science:
The camera takes photographs of LEGO parts coming alongthe belt, then sends images of the parts wirelessly to a server which runs an AI algorithm to identify the part out of thousands of possible LEGO elements. I’ll give more details about the AI algorithm itself in future articles, but this article will be dedicated to the processing that occurs between the camera’s raw video output and the input to the neural network.

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
