New Macbook Case Can Be Customized With LEGO Blocks
Macbook covers are found in different shapes and designs but I can bet you won’t find a more cooler cover than this one. If you are a LEGO fan then it’s time to customize your cover with LEGO.
A new Kickstarter campaign went live for snap-on Brik Case that can be fully customized via LEGO. You can consider it as a canvas, use your imagination and create different designs on your Macbook. My inner nerd can’t wait to get his hands on this.
The case supports Mega Bloks, PixelBlocks, KRE-O and K’NEX, and according to its Kickstarter page, the project needs $30,000 for further development. At the time of writing, there are 265 backers and $12,037 raised already with 27 days to go.
There is a catch though, the case is only compatible with MacBook Pros and MacBook Airs manufactured in 2013 and beyond. So if you happen to have one, you’re in luck. According to the product creators:
Our experienced product designers have constructed a thin, light, and durable prototype case. The Brik Case will clip on and off your Macbook easily. The brick ridges also make the laptop easier to grip and position.
After testing several different types of plastics, we have found that the Brik Case will require special molds for ABS plastic. We’ll need several molds for different MacBook sizes. Molds are expensive ($10,000+). Raising money on Kickstarter will help pay for the molds, packaging, engineers, and the first order of Brik Cases.
Something tells me this will sell like hotcakes.
Brik Case is the perfect way for a LEGO fan to express himself and if you feel the same, head over to their page and support the creators with your wallet.
Speaking of creators, they are known as Jolt Team and you can visit their official page to know more about them. Jolt Team expects these cases to ship in August 2015, provided their campaign is successful.
