21st Century Building Toy

I've been experimenting with a paper straw and pipe cleaner version of the TIN toy structural system I proposed here earlier this year. (Do a search for TIN TOY to see these models.) It is a bit tedious to cut and fold the pipe cleaners into the hexagonal hubs but otherwise building these structures is fun and allows for the creation of shapes that are just not possible with traditional building toys like Legos. In a world with SketchUp and Frank Gehry shouldn't we have a building toy that allows for more curvaceous structures. I'd like to work with others to create an open-source toy system based on TINs. If you would like to collaborate on this please get in touch. Thanks. Fred #construction #open_source #TIN #toy
