Almost every child growing up has at least one type of construction set, usually several different types. I remember having probably 20 different Lego sets, a Tinkertoy set, and a couple K’Nex sets. I would literally spend hours letting my imagination run wild, building anything from vehicles, to houses, to castles and more.

The Free Universal Construction Kit
The Free Universal Construction Kit (fffff.at/free-universal-construction-kit) is a collection of nearly 80 adapter bricks that enable complete interoperability between ten popular children’s construction toys. By allowing any piece to mate with any other, the Kit encourages totally new forms of intercourse between otherwise closed systems — enabling radically hybrid Constructivist play and the creation of heretofore impossible designs. (For example, one of the pieces adapts Legos® to Tinkertoys®.) 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.
