Slice of Life: Lego My Chicago

There’s a strange little free iPhone application from the people at Lego that lets you take a picture of something, and then renders it as if it was made out of Lego bricks.

Here’s a snap I took of the Chicago skyline with the app.  The farther away you are, the better it looks.  The three towers rising from the brick jumble are the Trump Tower (401 North Wabash Street), Willis Tower (233 South Wacker Drive), and the Park Tower (800 North Michigan Avenue).
