Anyone who enjoys building projects using physical blocks such as LEGO or similar may be interested in a new construction set which has been designed with pixel art styling in mind and takes the form of PIXIO.
PIXIO are square magnetic blocks which are available in 16 colours including Red, Orange, Yellow, Light green, Green, Turquoise, Light blue, Blue, Violet, Pink, Tan, Light brown, Brown, Gray, Black, and White.
Watch the video below to learn more about the types of things that can be constructed using these unique magnetic building blocks which are taken to Kickstarter this month to raise the $75,000 they require to go into production.
The development team at PIXIO explain a little more about the inspiration and design of their new cubic building block system.
PIXIO is a unique construction set in which pixio blocks are connected as you want, thanks to a well-thought-out system of powerful magnets. Finally, you can create in the style of pure pixel art without any visible fixing elements. This is the easiest construction set to use.
Just take the pixio block in your hand and place it where you want it to be connected — BANG! — the pixio block is connected. This construction set will be enjoyed by everyone who loves creativity, technology, design, games, and just fun.
We are working on instructions for many hundreds of characters, and we will be ready to release an application that will clearly show how easy it is to create awesome items. For each set of PIXIO, we will include instructions that show how easy it is to create with this construction set.
