Linx — "Solve the problem with what's in the room"


Edwin H. Land's exhortation mixes nicely with these plastic hubs that connect grocery store drinking straws.


Wrote Kevin Kelly in Cool Tools,


"This inexpensive construction kit uses simple plastic hubs to connect grocery store drinking straws. You can assemble quite large — and featherweight — structures in crystalline and geodesic designs. The 125 included hubs are enough for several big projects and are reusable."


"While you can use 'bendable' drinking straws I don't recommend them because they weaken the structures but if that's all you can find at the store they'll do."


$18 (straws not included).

Straws not included?!? Hmph.

"Hi welcome to MacDonald's this is Phyllisha can I take your order."
"Uh, yeah - I'd like a Quarter Pounder combo with a Diet Coke and two thousand straws."

Thanks, I had to have these for my son. Wish they weren't back ordered, but I understand why. Toooooo cool.
