When I first heard the phrase "Lego sorter," I expected some crazy production line robot with moving arms and a glowing red eye. Thankfully, the Box4Blox sorter works as simply as the Lego bricks it stores.

Update: Okay, after seeing how many of you know about this already, I guess I could have had one of these as a kid. But I didn't. Maybe it's a relaunch of a long-lost tool. Or maybe it's been around forever. Either way, I still think it's neato.

This thing got announced video popped up way back in March, and I'm amazed we missed it up until now. The device has four trays with square holes along the bottom. These openings get progressively smaller to sort out the bricks by size. And that's really all there is to it. Genius.

Sounds good, and according to the Brothers Brick, it works well too. They found it does a great job sorting a kid's collection, and even works well as pre-sorter for more complex adult collections.

Seems like cool beans, but we'll have to let Jesus take a crack at it. Then, and only then, will we have the ultimate judgement. [Brothers Brick, Youtube via @chr1sa]
