Identify Any Brick, In the Blink of an Eye!

Back in April this year we stumbled across a very cool, OK, massively nerdy project. LEGO have produced a vast array of pieces over the years, everything from a flaming sword to a Deadpool duck head. No, we don’t know why either. Most of LEGO’s pieces however, are rather useful, but with so many made how do you know what it is you have (and need more of)? Piqabrick have the answer.

“Thanks to Artificial Intelligence, Piqabrick instantly identifies Lego bricks’ code, simplifying the long-lasting operations of searching and sorting.

Piqabrick easily and quickly identifies any Lego brick providing you the ID code and color code. How? Thanks to our proprietary computer vision technology. Piqabrick “looks at” a brick to identify it, just like we already do… but better!”

Sounds cool right? OK, not cool – massively nerdy again, but really bloody useful. Better still, Piqabrick has no monthly or yearly fee: it’s free for a lifetime.

If you’d like to find out more about how Piqabrick works and pledge so that the tool can become a reality then visit the Piqabrick Kickstarter campaign via the link below!

What’s That Brick?

Lego Piqabrick

LEGO have released literally thousands of brick designs over the years (anyone know how many?). Some of them weren’t even bricks either (take a look at this, this, and even this monstrosity…).

That can make identifying one a real pain, but good news! Cue the nerdiest thing we’ve ever posted (ok, since this at least) – PIQABRICK!

PIQABRICK is effectively a 3D scanner that can identify any LEGO piece, even the oddities above, revealing the part code that can be dropped into third-party brick marketplaces such as BrickOwl and Bricklink.

Now obviously you have to own the piece that you want to identify already, but for those more seriously into the art of LEGO model making, or the few that do it professionally, PIQABRICK could save hours of research.

Take a look at the video below see how it works, and click here to follow the project in advance of its launch on Kickstarter.
