Meccano Meets Arduino
The idea for this project started with an Arduino starter kit. The electronic + coding parts seemed fun, but we didn’t love the paper “bodies” that we found in the set. We decided to changed them to something more construction like, and thought about the once loved-by-children Meccano.
This project turned into a tribute to the slightly forgotten construction toy. We looked for a way to mix the two worlds, of construction play and electronic tinkering.
Although it stopped at a stage of sketches, mock ups and a presentation for the company, from a personal perspective, this was a beginning of my interest in researching the mix of technology and play, electronics and the world of tinkering. – Klementyna
