LEGO

I never had any but I see them advertised as kits and bulk all the time. This is the first time I've see these.

ZURU Mayka Toy Brick Tape allows bricks from LEGO, Mega Bloks, and Kreo to be built on any surface — even upside-down!
Mayka Toy Brick Tape is a flexible rubber strip with a reusable adhesive backing that can stick to any smooth surface.
On its non-sticky side it's covered in a 4-stud pattern that fits into the holes on the bottom of LEGO bricks.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 LEGO tape with a pair of scissors, stick it on the hull, mount your cannon, and be on your way.
Walls, fridge doors, or even shoes offer limitless possibilities, transforming surfaces into a connected base for construction toy bricks and figures — the "LEGO of Things." It's so simple you wonder why no one thought of it before (we’re looking at you, LEGO).
Starting life as Nimuno Loops on Indiegogo — and raising an astonishing £1.2million — before being licensed by ZURU, Mayka Toy Brick Tape is all set to be a colossal global hit.

Looks cool. Hard to fold, though.

They show it going around outside corners pretty well, but inside corners not so much. Probably better to cut and butt it there.
The biggest problem in the price.

Rubbish. It's not system.

Hardcore AFOLs* define "system" as not only as Lego brand bricks only (no Mega Bloks, etc.), but using Lego pieces in the way they were designed--no 'illegal' connections which stress the parts. Not even Lego Technics are always 'system' in use --the stud of a 'headlight' brick may not be used to connect laterally with a Technics brick with spoke receiver. They are off by some significant fraction of millimeters, or LDUs**.

*Adult Fans of Lego

**LDraw Unit, the unit of measurement in the open source standard for Lego CAD programs



did I say all that out loud


nvm

No no, then you'll have to share the lego with him.

Very interesting. I have several questions' 1) how long does the glue last? 2) How strong is the glue? 3) Does it really match up with Logo?
