LEGO Life of George

Most of us have heard of LEGO Mindstorms. Another interesting project by the toy company is Life of George, “the world’s first interactive game combining LEGO bricks with your mobile device.” Life of George gives users LEGO building challenges on their mobile phones that they must construct in real life. The user then takes a picture of the finished structure, and the mobile software determines how close it is to the original instructions.

Life of George is a great example of how computer vision can be used in design games. It even allows kids to upload their own designs for other players to build.

Here are some Halloween-themed designs submitted by real players:
