What can you not build with LEGOs? Well, if you are Chris Shepherd, if there is something you can't build with them, he hasn't found it yet. Case in point, website Singularity Hub has this article by Aaron Saenz showcasing Shepherd's LEGO robots rapidly sorting through items:

From the article:

In his continuing obsession with all things Lego, robotic, and awesome, Shepherd recently constructed the Lego Quad Delta Robot System, a full working model of an industrial robotics line in a factory. The Lego Quad Delta Robot System has four flexing arms that can move in three dimensions, each equipped with a pneumatically driven gripper. Those arms pick up blocks moving on two conveyor belts marked with special light sensors that detect the block's position and color. The system can move 48 of these blocks per minute.
