– Flexible material that allows multiple configurations

– Integrated joints that are not visible in a finished configuration

– Children safe: It is virtually impossible to detach the joints from the stripes


An experimental setup was designed to find the optimal joint configuration

This is a possible alternative to the Chinese Patent CN202897141U, who proposes to attach Möbius stripes with zips. This is also different from the current versions of Flexible Lego Tape and Flexo building bricks

The realized prototype proved to be effective in demonstrating the feasibility of the invention.
