Giant Plastic Building Blocks

by Sarah Begley (Time, 12 Oct 2015)

Build anything, anywhere, one piece at a time.  That’s the idea behind EverBlock, a new product that aims to be Lego for grownups, offering jumbo plastic blocks–the standard one measures 12 by 6 by 6 in. and retails for $7.25–that can be snapped together to create room dividers, shelving units, coffee tables, installation artwork (like the castle below) and even tomporary shelters.  (Each block has a built-in passages for power cords, LED strips or reinforcers.)  The goal, says creator Arnon Rosan, is to create a low-cost way to enable everyday construction, much in the vein of 3-D printers.
