Universal Construction Kit — Free, the way we like it

00006548_kit_6463_collection_500x333

From an April 4, 2012 post on con.ca: "Free Art and Technology (F.A.T.) has released the Free Universal Construction Kit, a series of adapters that allow complete interoperability between 10 popular construction toys. Where were you guys a decade ago?!"

F.A.T. Lab and Sy-Lab are pleased to present the Free Universal Construction Kit: a matrix of nearly 80 adapter bricks that enable complete interoperability between 10 popular children's construction toys. By allowing any piece to join to any other, the Kit encourages totally new forms of intercourse between otherwise closed systems — enabling radically hybrid constructive play, the creation of previously impossible designs, and ultimately, more creative opportunities for kids. As with other grassroots interoperability remedies, the Free Universal Construction Kit implements proprietary protocols in order to provide a public service unmet — or unmeetable — by corporate interests.
