Mosaic Maker now available online

40179 Personalised Mosaic Portrait, which until now was only available in special photo booth-like machines in selected brand stores can now be purchased at LEGO.com in the USA.

The in-store machine takes a photo of you then generates instructions to enable construction of your portrait using the 4,500 greyscale and yellow 1x1 plates in the box.

To test it, I uploaded one of the images from my review of 40417 Year of the Ox and the result is quite reasonable, as you'll see after the break.

There's no word yet on wider availability but given that most brand stores in Europe are shut, I wouldn't be surprised if it turns up here soon, too.
