Have you ever thought about displaying your Lego creations on the wall? It will soon be possible thanks to Nimuno Loops, a tape that allows you to place building blocks anywhere you want. It can stick to walls, ceilings, furniture, or any place you might think of.
The building tape lets you be creative
Nimuno Loops might not be an official product, but it has already spiced a lot of interest from the fans. But what is the product, more precisely? It is a roll of tape which has one sticky side and the other is studded and it can host building blocks.
Now, fans of Lego and of other building blocks can no longer limit themselves to the floor and be as creative as they want when choosing a place to display their “artworks”. The inventors presented their product on their Indiegogo page.
“Imagine being able to build around corners, on curved surfaces, or even onto the sides of that sailing ship you’ve just spent hours building. You forgot to engineer a point of attachment for that sweet dinosaur-smashing cannon? No problem. Snip a length of Nimuno Loops, stick it on the hull, mount your cannon and be on yarr way.”
Also, everybody knows how painful it is to step on a Lego block hidden somewhere on your floor. Now you can avoid such an unpleasant incident by building on tape and sticking the toys away from your feet.
How does it work?
The tape is compatible with Lego, Kre-O, Mega Bloks, and most building systems that use blocks. Here is a video which shows you precisely how you can use the tape.
Anine Kirsten and Max Basler are the creators. To manufacture this amazing product, they organized a crowdfunding campaign where they asked for donations. Initially, they asked for a sum $8,000, but they succeeded in raising people’s interest and, so far, have raised around $400,000.
They declared that they had done all the development by themselves, by working on their own laptops and in their own homes. The product proved pretty popular and it most probably meet the success the creators expect.
As mentioned before, the product is not official yet. This means that Lego have been asked if they wanted to support Nimuno, but they have not given an answer yet. Judging from the popularity that the tape has already met, it might turn out profitable to start a cooperation with Nimuno.
