Instabrick: Part identification system
I'm Stefano Berti, one of the creators of Piqabrick, a part identification system already seen on a Brickset's article here
Thanks to computer vision technology, Piqabrick quickly identifies any Lego brick, providing you the ID code and the color code. It simplifies and speeds up the identificaion of bricks and minifigs and helps you create and manage your own inventory, and more.
If you have any questions, suggestions, this is the right place to let us know.
In case you haven't seen Piqabrick in action yet, here is a review by one of our beta-tester Simon from Germanyhttps://youtu.be/DZaSa4Zezsw
And this is the link to our live campaign on Kickstarterhttp://kck.st/2PgO51X

I have supported and really hope this makes it to production. I have hundreds of minifigures that need identifying, and this will be a great improvement over manually searching.
@daewoo If you're looking to dump five pounds of bulk Lego in and have it sorted, how would you design the output? Each piece would have to get scanned separately, maybe on a conveyor belt, and then either moved manually to a bin or automatically routed to a specified bin. Who's got room for 2350 bins x 52 colors for truly automated sorting?
If you have enough parts you need to identify, then you probably already know the majority of them or are good enough at Bricklink/etc to figure the few out.
If a part is not in our database you have a no match.
To be able to identify a part quickly - not only minifig torsos - is a real timesaver when you have a Bricklink store.
Congratulations to the PiqaBrick team!
Now you can pre-order it with a special discount on the retail price.
As far as importing parts from China, I'll quote the email I received:
"We are facing now a new issue after we found the new camera and reached an agreement with our camera supplier, ELP. A few days ago the ELP suddenly interrupted the communication and their website (www.elpcctv.com) went down. is based in China, as basically any camera or electronics producer/supplier. It is likely the communication breakdown is related to the China blockade situation due to recent Coronavirus outbreak."
The Coronavirus is causing all sorts of disruptions in China, so I think it is not unreasonable to assume it could be the cause of communication problems with the supplier.
I still expect the project will be completed successfully, although it might not make the end of February ship date.
Let's see how fast support is.
