Based on a mathematical shape called a hyperbolic paraboloid, HyperTiles are simple, super-versatile shapes that can be linked together in an infinite number of combinations. Unlike traditional building sets, HyperTiles connect in nonlinear and unpredictable ways, meaning the shapes you are creating are often like nothing you've ever seen before. Plus, hinging connectors allow many of the shapes to flex and rotate in on themselves in fascinating ways.
HyperTiles changes how we play, explore and learn. Historically, construction sets that have been available on the market have all been fairly predictable: You stick these two blocks together and you get... a bigger block. You connect these four bars together at right angles and make... a square. What makes HyperTiles so unique and exciting is that you really are exploring when you play with them. And you really don't know where that exploration is going to lead. Let's see... If I connect two tiles this way, but then add a third one this way and then repeat that pattern... Oh WOW! I didn't see that coming!
I know you must be asking, what can these creations be used for? Well, that is entirely up to your creativity and imagination. A place to hang your jewelry. A centerpiece for the dining room table. A climbing structure for your hamster. A decorative mobile (hang it near a sunny window and the shadows are amazing). Superhero crown and wrist-bands. A hyperbolic surface for playing a whole new version of tic-tac-toe. The possibilities are limitless!
Package contains 48 hyperbolic tiles in 8 colors, 80 flex-grip connectors, and instructions.
