NEW YORK, April 30, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Lunchbox Electronics has created the smallest, stackable, LEGO-compatible, light up bricks called Build Upons. Build Upons are awesomely tiny light up bricks that are compatible with LEGO® bricks. Light up your robot, house, spaceship or monster. These are the latest in Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, Math (STEAM) toys brought to you by Lunchbox Electronics, a woman-owned company. We launched a Kickstarter to bring Build Upons to market. Back the Kickstarter now to get these before anyone else!
The Build Upons system has three types of bricks: an LED brick, a power brick, and a bridge brick. Light the LED bricks by connecting them to a Power Brick - you can design pathways with as many Bridge Bricks as you need for ultimate flexibility. Build Upons LED bricks are based on 1x1 bricks to create elegant designs. You don't need to know electronics to use these bricks, you simply build, just like you've always done! Build Upons bring a different solution to the market with ultimate flexibility and are smaller than the other light up bricks on the market.
Build Upons are a great gift idea for the kids in your life, including that kid that never grew up, and will be ready in time for the holidays! Back the Build Upons Kickstarter now to be among the first people in the world to build with the smallest light up bricks: www.kickstarter.com/projects/1828089281/build-upons-light-up-bricks and Tweet about it!
Alicia Gibb, CEO of Lunchbox Electronics first created a light up brick grid at NYCResistor, a hackerspace in Brooklyn. She has been engineering light-up building bricks ever since. In 2012 Boing Boing's Expired Patent of the Day was the Lego brick shape, so she took that as a hint, started a company and has been figuring out how to embed electronics into Lego-compatible brick shapes. She is now directing the BTU Lab (Blow Things Up), a hackerspace at CU Boulder in the ATLAS Engineering Department.
