Kickstarter Project Versa Bricks connects LEGO, Hot Wheels, and K’Nex blocks

Versa Bricks are the brain child of Jerry Schutt of Ohio. Like many of us as a child he would  play with LEGO and Hot Wheels. He wanted to play with the two together and use bricks to build ramps for the cars.  But the ramps were didn’t work as he planned.  Fast forward to today. with his background in engineering,  computer  modeling software,  3D printers for prototypes, and his family, Versa Bricks can be a reality.

Jerry has launched a Kickstarter Project to fund Versa Bricks. There are six different Versa Brick blocks designed to connect LEGO, Hot Wheels, and K’nex toys. A seventh brick that would connect HO scale train track tracks is an unlockable stretch goal.  The bricks will be red. They will be made of ABS material. The funding period opened on October 13  and ends on December 1, that’s just a week away. The Versa Bricks are projected to be delivered in March of next year.
