These brilliant connecting toys are perfect for both aspiring young architects and industry professionals. These toys can be a fun game or an interactive learning tool for creating and designing new concepts and ideas.

Mike Acerra designed the connecting toys called Lux. The name stands for limitless universal construction. These construction toys are created using a square design concept but have the ability to create unusual polyhedral shapes.

The main idea is to have these play things be used by children, teachers, inventors, designers and scientists. The versatile building tools can be used to show molecular structure, particle behavior or create a brand new building concept. Each piece of Lux is connected through hinges, which allows for kinetic movement and flexibility throughout each design process. Lux can be a playful toy or an advanced learning tool.
