Branes Construction Toy

MakerBrane's Branes are a constructive play ingredient designed to encourage hybrid constructions and aesthetics, creative thinking, and re-use. Each of the 3 modules has its own personality. They combine together in thousands of ways to create solid or moving joints and structures. They are sufficient by themselves, but unlike closed brand systems, Branes are universal connectors compatible with third-party parts. Everyone can become a designer-maker when not obliged to think inside the box. Kids can be creators of their own playthings, not just consumers of toys.

MakerBrane is a physical and digital platform that lets anyone design and discover new toy worlds. MakerBrane was founded by husband and wife team Ayssar Arida and Sabine de Maussion to address the lack of diversity in the toy world. The company creates a physical construction set based on just three modules, the "Branes", which allow new ways to build because they're compatible across different toy brands and systems. MakerBrane has also created an online 3D builder software, called the 3DMakerSpace, that lets anyone design new toys and make them available in the form of digital step-by-step instructions for others to rebuild in real life. MakerBrane hopes that by offering these physical and digital tools, they can democratize the design of toys and let anyone anywhere participate in the creation of a global catalogue of playthings.
