A new building system using playing cards

New on Kickstarter: Skallops

Skallops is a new building system by Evan Murphy, Michael Woods, and Marshall Grinstead that uses small laser cut wooden clips to hold together standard playing cards. The clips are designed in such a way as to allow the cards to be connected in as many ways as possible. You can even connect two Skallops to each other back-to-back.

The system is about as simple as it gets, which usually means it has been carefully designed. The project still has a month to go on Kickstarter, but it is already fully funded by a considerable margin.

    Very cool! This could work just as well 3D printed, but the aesthetics of the wood with the playing cards is a better finish for this design and the objects built with it.
