Another day, another toy seeking funding on Kickstarter.

It'd be unfair to describe MagneBricks as just another toy, however. The magnetic construction bricks each contains ten of the "most powerful" rare Earth magnets (Neodymium Grade 52).

Each brick has male and female interlocking features, allowing for building along all three axis in full and half-brick steps.

"The interlocking features not only help to strengthen the connection, but also make it easy to know which faces will attract," read a statement. "We have taken the best of the traditional plastic building bricks we’re all familiar with and added the magical magnetic attraction that kids (and adults) love. In addition to building in 2D and 3D on your desk, you can also build on your refrigerator (or many other metallic surfaces) for even more creative play."

MagneBricks is seeking $35,000 in funding on Kickstarter.

The products were invented by Richard Laboris, who has worked in computer networking and software development for the past 18 years. He has degrees in Electrical and Computer Engineering, and taught himself 3D CAD modelling. He uses a 3D printer to create prototypes.

"I’ve been designing, prototyping, and testing MagneBricks for almost a year now," he said. "Many iterations of different sizes, shapes, features, and magnets [were produced] until I got it just right. My Printrbot (funded on Kickstarter) has been churning out all sorts of plastic bricks non stop for several months."

Other toys seeking funding on Kickstarter include the Slender Man plush doll and flying R/C car. View more Kickstarter content here.
