If you’ve been collecting Lego for years, chances are you might be sitting on a box or two of random leftover bricks. What you want to build using those bricks is entirely up to you, but if you’re open to suggestions, then maybe you might want to take a look at the Brickit app that uses augmented reality to help give you some suggestions.

How it works is that it takes your smartphone’s camera and scans your available bricks. From there, it will know what kind of bricks you have available and will then suggest some build ideas using what you have. It’s actually pretty cool based on the video above where it seems to be able to scan all your bricks in a matter of seconds.

We’re not sure how effective the app is since we don’t own any Lego pieces, but you know what, if you do, then it could be worth checking out. That being said, based on the reports of those who have tried it, it seems to work just fine, although the proposed builds are a bit simplistic, but then again, it’s just a suggestion and you can always build off that.

If you’re interested in taking the app for a spin, it is available as a free download from the iOS App Store, so head on over for the download.
