This is kinda cool! The official LEGO photo app takes your photo, and then turns it into a mosaic, made up of 1X1 Lego bricks. It’s cute, fun and free (iTunes link). Though we’d love to see it give you a list of which bricks you would need to recreate the the image yourself. Maybe have it tie in to Lego’s custom store, so you could just upload the image, and it would offer you the option to buy a set of bricks, which then get delivered to your house. Christmas shopping for next year? Done!
Of course what we all really want from Lego is an official virtual environment to play with the bricks on our phones.
