LEGO bricks recognition app. Would it be useful?
Hi! First post here :) I came out of my dark ages just 6 months ago with an excuse of finding these cool star wars sets for my 7yo son. Got a LOT of used Lego lots from eBay. I think at this point we have like 40-50kg excluding 50 already assembled sets.
Sorting Lego bricks was fun at the begging but now it is just painful. Researching each individual brick is pain in the ass. So since I run a startup that deals with new technologies I thought that it could be fun to build an app with brick recognition. Idea is to train an image recognition neural network. The way it would work is you'd need to snap a photo of an individual brick and it should give you a part number along with some less probable alternatives. It could than save it into your database, upload it to bricklink or make a list of sets that include this part. There's a lot of possibilities once recognition would be functional.
Would you find it useful? I'd like to avoid hours of work if this wouldn't help anybody but me.
