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. This step is accomplished online by uploading an image to the online mosaic generator, which produces a PDF of your image to enable you to build it.
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.
Thanks to akindu01 fo the news.
