Free Universal Construction Kit Links Different Construction Toy Systems

If you or a young tinker in your household is disappointed that there is no way to link LEGO bricks and Lincoln Logs (or other construction toys on the market) this project is for you.

Free Universal Construction Kit is project oriented around creating inter-operable linking bricks that allow the user to link previously non-compatible building system. Using the bricks you can, for example, attach LEGO bricks to a K’Nex construction. The adapter bricks are all available as free 3D printer models–download them, fire up your 3D printer, and start mish-mashing your construction sets.

    Yeah let me just uh…go fire up my imaginary 3-D printer….For the rest of the world, duct tape!

    Yeah. this is cool, but there’s one flaw in your design:

    NO ONE here has a 3D printer!

    yes, this could be very handy if I’m ever four years old again.

    Great idea, It’s the thought that counts, I wonder how long it will take before some-one puts something like it on the market.

    probably never considering that most of these construction toys don’t exist any more.

    Hmm… I may have to take a wander to my local Hackerspace location and see if they are willing to use their 3D printer for some of these!
