Vision based LEGO sorter

Most LEGO sorters rely on things like colour and possibly raw size to differentiate. This one by Akiyuki uses a webcam combined with a set of digital scales to do some fantastic vision recognition. It's a little bit slow, but I love the two-stage conveyor belt which does an excellent job of isolating different LEGO pieces.

The nice thing about this particular setup, it that with just a change in software, you could sort all manner of objects, LEGO, candy, small toys, nuts/bolts etc.
