Official iPhone Lego App Converts Reality Into a Brick Mosaic

Illustration for article titled Official iPhone Lego App Converts Reality Into a Brick Mosaic

When I saw "Official iPhone Lego App" in my mailbox today, I got instantly wet. Then I checked it out in the iTunes App Store, and my dreams were destroyed. But when I tried it, I loved it anyway.

But then again, I'm a Lego sucker. Big time. So, while the Lego Photo application is obviously not my dream virtual Lego construction app, I definitely like it very much. It's elegant, well designed, and the results—which convert your images into pretty 1x1 Lego mosaics—are pretty.

I wish they add an option to give you a list of bricks needed to complete the mosaic in real life. [iTunes—Thanks John]

I played with this one...its not terrible. Pictures with a lot of dark or varying colors come out completely effed up, as you'd expect from being made out of (Essentially) gigantic pixels.

The irony...cell phones put in better and better cameras to cut down on how pixelated the images look...and yet here we have an app designed to make things go the other way and look MORE pixelated.
