Lego my legos!

The Lego Group began in Denmark producing the first Lego blocks in 1932 as a way to reuse the small pieces left over from the construction of toys. It wasn’t until the 1960s that Legos came to the United States when Samsonite acquired permission to produce Legos for distribution in North America.

For the next thirty years, Legos were one of the most popular toys for children. Who doesn’t remember their parents screaming at them for leaving their Legos around to get stepped on?

The Jolt Team is bringing childhood memories to the workplace. They’ve developed a Brik Case for Mac laptops that is compatible with toy bricks.

This case is made of a thin, durable plastic that is ridged to fit the bricks. It snaps on and off your laptop easily. It fits on the MacBook Pros and MacBook Airs manufactured since 2013, and allows you to build different designs with Legos and other compatible bricks right on your computer. In a Kickstarter project to gain funding for manufacturing the product, the Jolt Team makes the disclaimer that while they are not officially licensed by Lego, K’Nex, Mega Bloks, PixelBlocks, or KRE-O, the Brik Case just happens to be compatible.

Shipping begins this fall!

With 11 days left to go in the Kickstarter campaign, they’ve received almost 1,300 backers who have pledged almost $70,000 to begin production. This is more than double their goal of raising $30,000. They say they plan to ship the Brik Case to their backers by mid-August. The Kickstarter project was to make the molds and pay for the packaging engineers, as well as pay for the first shipment of the Brik Cases.

There’s still time to get in on the Kickstarter campaign, but the lowest pledge packages are gone. For a pledge of $65 you get two Brik Cases and two Bag O’Bricks that include 100 bricks to make designs on your Mac.

The Brik Case is valued at around $40 per case, so it’s still a bargain. If you remember playing with Legos as a child, you’ll enjoy having the option of playing with them as an adult when you’re at work. You’ll have a reason to close your laptop and take a 15 minute break so that you can get creative with your toy bricks.
