The Brik Case on Kickstarter kicks off its project description with a disclaimer. It's not affiliated in any way with Lego, Mega Bloks, PixelBlocks, KRE-O or K'Nex Bricks. Now that we have that out of the way, let's move on to exactly how fun this product looks.
The Brik Case is a simple concept. It covers the top of your MacBook with a studded surface suitable for sticking all sorts of plastic building bricks onto. The project gives some examples, like clicking flat pieces on the cover to re-create the Apple logo, fashioning a business card holder or letting your kid build on it while you work.
Let's contemplate this for a moment. The beauty of the Brik case is that it's a blank canvas. Use it to display your business logo or a favorite hashtag in bricks. De-stress by closing your laptop and building structures to take your mind off work for a few minutes. You could get really crazy with it and reenact whole "Star Wars" scenes using Lego kits. Sure, you might not be able to fit your laptop into a laptop bag without disturbing the Force, but it would be worth it.
The covers will fit a MacBook Pro or MacBook Air manufactured in 2013 or later and are going for a $35 (about £24, AU$46) pledge. That price includes a bag of 100 1x1 bricks, the thin kind that will (hopefully) stay in place when you slide your laptop in and out of a bag.
The Brik Case is a way to reconcile our adult working lives with joys of creation from our childhood days. Just because you're all grown up now and using an expensive laptop doesn't mean you have to leave behind the imaginative world of building blocks. You can have it all.
