Once fancy lego sorter

This one is pretty amazing. This is one big lego sorter (made of legos of course). It uses AI to id and find new lego parts to add to its category. https://www.ubergizmo.com/2019/12/lego-sorter-uses-neural-network/?utm_source=mainrss

RPi christmas tree display

Interest build.  The LED’s for this project must have been a small fortune.  Anyways the author built a nice LED stand to put over a planter and uses a Raspberry PI for the controller. https://www.instructables.com/id/RGB-LED-Maker-Tree/
