Stacks of aquariums. Stacks of LEGO. Stacks of movies. Missing a stack of books. My life is like a game of Jenga.

comment Has anyone automated the LEGO hand sorting process beyond “pawing & piling”?
Thanks. We're getting closer. The obsessive compulsive side of me says I should build one. Rube Goldbrick, here I come.

comment Is there a database of original Minifigure configurations, including their personal gear?
I perused the websites & read the book review. Does anyone know if the book shows the accessories that go with each minifig? The links show them bare handed.

Thanks! I'd say you are all correct! I haven't read the book yet, but the websites are great. I'm having a blast.

@pcantin: I think the device in the video is awesome, but it seems somewhat limited by the number of elements types it can sort at one time and by the speed it can sort them. I'm picturing a sort by hand "mailslot" pigeon hole system that routes to dozens of trays at once.

I'm imagining a sorting table with a slotted back panel into which you drop the pieces and retrieve them from a series of collection trays. It's still sorting by hand, but it would accelerate the unbuild/sorting process. It would be great to see if anybody has done this.

You are right. It is a bit spendy. I imagine it would be an entertaining book to check out at the librairy.
