Troxes: another attempt at LEGO

Bobrow developed Troxes as a student at the MIT Media Lab when he got an assignment to make what’s called a “press-fit kit”—essentially a self-interlocking system of objects (like Legos). He liked the structural strength and efficiency of triangles and how these interlocking pieces could combine into larger structures: Tetrahedrons, octahedrons, and icosahedrons. Soon, the assignment turned into a full-blown obsession, and now, a business… More at Curbed.

Good idea, but without the potential age range of customers that LEGO has.
