This super amazing tape will turn EVERYWHERE into a Lego-surface
If you have a little person (or, indeed, husband) at home who is obsessed with Lego, we have just discovered something to go totally ga-ga over.
Because a Cape Town-based couple, who are both industrial designers, have now created something we just know is going to take off on an EPIC scle.
Say hello to Nimuno Loops, a sort-of Lego-compatible tape that will stick to pretty much any surface, basically enabling you to build Lego on your walls, furniture and even across the floor.
Anine Kirsten and Max Basler have focused on making toys for the majority of their careers and with their latest product – hope to increase the ‘creative potential’ of LEGO for ‘people young and old’.
As long-term fans of Lego, the designers say that 'the possibilities are endless and we’d like you to have the opportunity to create paradigm-shifting builds on more-or-less any smooth surface, anytime’.
And this flexible and cuttable tape, which will attach it to all sorts of materials – be that carpet, tiling, or plastic – we think will do just that.
Interestingly, the project was crowdfunded on Indiegogo, with Lego-loving enthusiasts raising 50 times over the original target of $8,000 (£6,551). In fact, accoring to reports, so far 12,600 backers have raised nearly $450,000 (£368,505) for the project.
As of yet, the tape rolls (which cost $11 per roll, or 10 rolls cost $50) are being produced in blue, orange and red, but more colours might be added later.
