If you enjoyed the LEGO Mosaic Maker machine at official LEGO stores overseas or may have heard about the unique set, you may actually find the Mosaic Art Creator app (to be available on the App store and Play store from ~14th December onwards) as a worthy upgrade!
LEGO Certified Stores (Bricks World) will be having the exclusive launch of the Mosaic Art Creator (MAC) for all Singapore based consumers to a one of a kind, customisable experience using LEGO bricks to build your photo(s) into personalised memorable mosaic art. Exclusively to their flagship store at ION Orchard on the 14th December at 10am.
Partnering with Brickzle, the MAC is a app based experience that allow you to turn a personal photo into this custom made mosaic kit that you can build into a proper LEGO mosaic as you get 100% authentic LEGO bricks and a XL baseplate as part of the experience.

We were enchanted with the official LEGO Mosaic maker 2 years ago, but the Mosaic Art Creator elevates this to another level as we may now upload just about any photo (just ensure the image has well defined contrast) including your pet, favourite idol or more which is not possible on the LEGO Mosaic Maker as it require your physical presence at the photo booth.
