Man Builds LEGO Brick Sorting Vacuum Attachment

 |  |  |  |  |  March 22, 2022

Because everyone has experienced the pain of stepping on a LEGO brick and cursing life itself, Matty Benedetto of Unnecessary Inventions has created the Suck It, a vacuum attachment that not only vacuums up the little plastic landmines but also sorts them based on size. Smart. Maybe not as smart as making LEGO bricks out of foam instead of plastic, but apparently, LEGO hasn’t been reading my emails.

The Suck It consists of four magnetically connected chambers separated by filters with increasingly smaller holes, so the largest pieces are caught at the top, the smallest at the bottom, and, God willing, pet hair gets sucked all the way into the vacuum.

The device actually works better than Matty anticipated, making it not such an Unnecessary Invention after all. As a matter of fact, I’d argue this is actually a Necessary Invention. Of course, the devil is probably going to buy up the patent rights and never release the Suck It to the public because he wants us all to continue to suffer.
