I am trying to make something similar to this?
Obviously it's possible to make it manually piece by piece, but I am looking for some kind of automated feature in Illustrator to achieve this?
Is this possible?
Thanks man in advance!

Colliderscribe is a great option. Another method of doing it is through the "transform each" feature.
The results will not be as good as Colliderscribe, but it works.
There is a plugin called ColliderScribe of Astute Graphics which is the direct answer of your question. Its a paid plugin but you can download its trial version which is for 14-15 days and use it. you can use the Space Fill Feature to achieve your goal.
You can google for its functionality and tutorial. There are lots of tutorial on this.
I believe the tool that would suit you best for this effect is a scatter brush. You can learn more about the scatter brush here: http://abduzeedo.com/illustrator-quick-tips-2-scatter-brushes
In Illustrator you can try this way:
i fake particles making a scatter brush, then i apply it to a line whitout fill around the area i want to fill with the particles. i find this way the easier, sorry for my english.
