Bucket o Bricks sorter

Nice LEGO sorter and interview with its creator - NeXT-Generation

I love:
  • The conveyor that organises the pieces (45 seconds in)
  • The pneumatic feeder that passes 1 block at a time (1:15)
  • The pneumatic / motor claw that takes the brick to the correct colour bin (1:45)

Heck, I love the whole thing! :)

The whole video is long at 24 minutes, but mesmerising in a weird sort of way. After around 2 minutes, he dives down in to the detail of how it all works.
