Brik Case is a Lego-like case for your MacBook

Do you get bored of looking at the same old laptop case all the time? You can change this one’s look as often as you like, thanks to its Lego-esque bricks.

The main element of the Brik Case is a sheet of plastic that’s a blank canvas for your bricks. It’s compatible with “all major toy brick brands”, according to the manufacturer, which means Lego, Duplo and others. And thanks to its ridges, it’s easy to grip, so won’t slip out of your hands.

The case is thin and lightweight, yet durable. (That’s according to the manufacturer – we’ll have to get it in our own hands to find out.) It also clips on and off easily.

We’re not sure how protective a thin sheet of plastic is going to be. Sure, it’ll protect the laptop from being scratched in your bag by your keys, but will it save it from a fall? There’s sadly little info on how much punishment it will endure.

Still, it’s a fun idea. It will mean you can personalise your case as often as you like. And as the Kickstarter page points out, it can also keep the kids entertained if they’re bored in the coffee shop.

It can be yours for $35, which is a little cheaper than the $39.99 (£27) retail price. That also gets you a bag of bricks, and 100 1×1 bricks, so you can start creating your masterpiece.

It’s passed its $30,000 funding goal and will ship in August.
