The whole building system involves only two unique shapes – the Aran Block itself and a separate cover piece. The blocks form the backbone of the system, which can be fitted into its counterpart blocks on all six sides, while the cover piece gives the top of the block a flat surface and also serves as a reinforcement for any structures designed with the blocks.
The story of how Aran Blocks is one I adore because the idea comes from a father, who was in a way inspired during a play session with his son. The CEO of Aran Blocks, Anand Dorasamy got frustrated while trying to play with his son Aran's construction toys because they only fit vertically and found the structures build weren't strong or usable. So he ended up with Aran's Blocks, perfectly named after his son. These blocks are really just 2 pieces, that fit and connect on all sides. The greatest part has to be that they are strong enough to bear the weight of an adult standing on it, as it is demonstrated in this video. They are unfortunately far from their goal with a few days left but they have launched it's crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter, it would be great to help a father out on this great product. Aran Blocks are available at a discount throughout the launch crowdfunding campaign ending in a few days.
