Building blocks that bring designs to life
03 April 2017
BRIXO electric bricks are normal sized building blocks that brings designs to life using electronic sensors, motors and connected apps.
The bricks safely conduct electricity and connect to your smartphone, they’re powered by a low voltage Bluetooth controlled built-in battery brick and coated in chrome, a non-toxic metal, to ensure safety.
BRIXO bricks include LED lights, motor blocks and sound, light and proximity sensors. There are three types of bricks; trigger block, connector block and action block. Trigger blocks are the ones set to respond with an action to sounds or lights. Action blocks basically set an action of your desire, whether that’s light up, spin or move. In the middle you have your sensors; light sensor sets your design to light up a dark room, sound sensor sets your blocks to respond to sound and proximity sensors triggers when a BRIXO block is nearby.
BRIXO blocks’ innovative design enables adjacent bricks to conduct currents in any direction via patented small elastic arms. Its smart, internal 9V battery block powers the designs and constantly monitors their currents so you don’t have to worry about short circuits. The smart battery also detects when you’re not using BRIXO and conserves power to extend battery life. The built-in Bluetooth controller lets you change the currents direction and voltage levels via the smartphone app. The trigger blocks are designed to control the action without additional wiring, so the whole process becomes simple.
There are several kits available for purchase and you don’t need to keep buying a new set because they can be used interchangeably. The following are the kits available:
• Starter kit
• Standard kit
• Maker’s kit
• Expert kit
• Mad scientist kit
• Classroom special
BRIXO blocks are a great, fun kit for makers and hobbyists but also an educational tool to teach the younger generation about electric circuits by actually building them. They can also be used to replace high end automated IoT processes, like turning on all your smart home devices by hanging up a BRIXO keyring.
