Lego Creation: Sorting Plant

It's the creation of, who spent over 800 hours of building and 250 hours of programming time on making it all run smoothly. The seven different NXT units in the construction communicate with each other over Bluetooth, and the software that runs it was built on leJOS -- a Java-based language for Mindstorms.It consists of more than 37,000 individual Lego blocks. Most impressively, the model has been specially-designed to fit into a single flight case for ease of transport.

A LEGO robot that sorts LEGOs? Proof that it’s only a matter of time before self-aware robots are building other robots without any need for human intervention. We had a pretty good run, though.

This project is a LEGO® Sorting plant, that sorts 2x4 and 1x2 bricks in size and color. It's build for a company called Dynaway ( They use this model to demonstrate their manufacturing execution system. The model is designed to fit inside one large flightcase, for easy transport. The model is the second model we've build for Dynaway.
