Case Studies

"The Free Universal Construction Kit created by F.A.T. Lab and Sy-Lab, is a 3-D-printable collection of 80 parts that function as a a Rosetta Stone for young builders." Allowing them to combine building blocks from a range of different sources... Lego, Duplo, Fischertechnik, Gears! Gears! Gears!, K’Nex, Krinkles, Lincoln Logs, Tinkertoys, Zome, and Zoob. "Through the kit, each brand can be connected to any other brand, so that the specific form and a function and aspects of each can be leveraged in order to create a network of toys,” explains the project team. “That’s really what every kid wants, an unrestricted set of tools to express their imagination physically.”
