I'm the guy behind Brixo, the electric bricks on r/geek yesterday. AMA
A friend sent me a link to the reddit post of my Brixo bricks, which blew my mind. Seems like there were a lot of questions, so with the help of a friend (since I'm new to reddit) I thought I'd hang out here a bit and answer any questions you have and talk shop.
A few things: -Yes, it's real, and totally works. And yes, it's a wireless connection based on proximity and light sensors as well as now being BLE enabled to connect with smartphones.
-We're just some tinkerers, and without any investment. So we've decided to launch on Kickstarter to raise money to manufacture Brixo at the lowest possible price to make them available to as many people as possible (while also paying ourselves for our time of course).
-We'll be launching a campaign in about 3 weeks, so if you'd like to be notified, just sign up on our site
Who am I? My name's Boaz Almog and I love science. You may have seen my TED talk a few years ago about quantum levitation. Brixo has been my passion project for the past few years, along with a small team of amazing people. I'm here to answer any questions on Brixo, quantum levitation, favorite Star Wars, pretty much anything.
