Build Your Own LEGO Scanner

We love LEGOs and while we’re partial to the Mindstorms set, Anders S�borg has built and programmed his own NXT scanner comprised mostly of these bricks.� For those not familiar with NXT scanners, they’re a “standalone” scanner that can scan and save images as BMP-files.� The images scanned can be saved in either 24-bit true color, 8-bit color or gray scale.

Although the device isn’t faster than any other scanner on the market (it’s quite slow actually), cut it some slack: it’s made out of toy blocks.� Anders was also nice enough to include DIY instructions on making your own, complete with programming instructions and all, on his website.
