Tangible Lights is a childrens’ building set made from cylindrical pieces that light up and change colors when you stack them together. Each block is embedded with an LED powered by a coin cell that can produce 160 hours of playing time, and embedded magnets make them snap together easily.
Putting a green spin on the project, all the Tangible Lights are constructed from reused milk jug containers. It’s a project that provides a hands-on, interactive learning experience for kids. Based on the video above, it looks like kids had a blast constructing with them, as I’m sure they will this year at World Maker Faire.
