LEDs come to building toys for kids. LiteBrix.

Boot Camp feature for Friday, February 8, 2013

LEDs come to building toys for kids.   I’m Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear.   Snap together building blocks can give kids countless hours or fun.  Lego has gone high tech with its MindStorm kits.   But if you want to add some simpler tech into the building block mix, a company called Cra-Z-Art has created LiteBrix.   The company’s Genna Rosenberg….

It’s a whole new take on a brick building system.  It’s compatible with all the other ones that are out on the marketplace, but it really is a big innovation in construction toys because there are LED lights, patented LED lights in each translucent brick.  So it helps boys and girls build their own world and take their creations into the night which is something they haven’t done before.”

The lights are powered by a battery pack.   Kits start at about twenty dollars.   You can find us with archives, interviews and more at BootCamp.com.
