LEGO is universally known, but in case you are unaware about LEGO, it is a famous construction toys line from The LEGO Group of Denmark. It consists of interlocking plastic bricks and other parts which can be assembled and connected with each other to create wider range of objects (Source: Wikipedia). LEGO is a very popular toy product chain and this website gives you the opportunity to see yourself being turned into a LEGO toy.
You can choose to create LEGO brick mosaic of either 16*16 or 32*32 size. The website also lets you move picture and set it at any angle. You can also choose whether you want to use any colors or only LEGO colors for creating the mosaic. The website saves all your mosaics for 48 hours, but there is also an option for saving it forever online. You can download your mosaic to PC and share a unique URL with anyone to view it online.
Note: The website also has feature in which it tells the steps to create your LEGO brick mosaic in reality, but it costs $5.
