Industrial Legos

We all, to some extent, grew up tinkering with Lego bricks, building cascading towers, cool little vehicles, or just trying to get that annoying little flat piece unstuck from another block. Ugh, just thinking about it makes me frustrated. 

Well, now you can relive your childhood with the Uberblox! Consisting of aluminum nodes, bars, and connectors, you can make almost anything you want, from 3D printers and CNC mills to even little robots. You don’t even need to weld them; you only need to screw each component¬†together. ¬†Controlled using Arduino or Raspberry Pi, you can make your insanely flexible robot/machine do virtually anything, and can break down and reuse all the different components.

Just like Lego Mindstorms, Uberblox also has specialized parts required for popular machines, as well as BrainBoxes (their equivalent of the NXT Brick) that allow users to make 3D printers, CNC mills, and even laser cutters and engravers.
