Just how many creative ways can you use a collection of LEGO bricks? We’ve seen a LEGO greenhouse recently, but this time around, the master brick makers from Denmark has decided to increase the desirability of their products by another notch thanks to LEGO Life of George that will merge physical building with a digital gaming application so that builders are able to test their building skills in a race against time.
Boasting patent-pending brick recognition software that is powered by EyeCue, the game intends to push the players’ boundaries by challenging them to come up with models of their own, and place them on a play mat that functions as a “green screen” in order to shoot the image and receive a score based on accuracy and speed.
From October 1st onwards, those who pick up the $29.99 LEGO Life of George set will also be eligible to download the free Apple iOS compatible gaming application. This game comes with a dozen levels that can be played in either novice or expert mode – where obviously the latter is far more challenging and is meant for seasoned builders. Each level will see George in an adventure, where models of varying difficulty will be required to be constructed.
