If you enjoy puzzles, then you'll want to “make way” for a brilliant kit called Makeway. The modular puzzle invites you to design your own marble obstacle course with their series of tracks, connectors, and trick pieces. Every element can be moved and arranged in any way—allowing you to create complex and exciting paths for the marbles. And best of all, each of the elements is magnetic and can be attached to any ferromagnetic surface like a fridge, locker, or whiteboard.
The possible marble track design can be small and compact or span the length or height of the wall; it’s all in the arrangement. To ensure that you never tire of the kit, Makeway has included eight different tracks and 15 tricks (like a pole, fork, spinners, funnels, and more) that will manipulate the path in which a marble travels.
Reuven Shahar and Elyasaf Shweka are industrial designers behind Makeway. “We always loved Rube Goldberg machines and wanted to create an easy way for everyone to make one,” Shweka shares in a statement. “It took us some time to experiment and find the perfect balance between the simplicity of the setup and the complexity of the final awesome outcome.” Makeway is for all ages; it can be the source of endless family fun or placed in your office as a way to unwind.
After years of prototyping, the marble course kit is now ready for everyone to enjoy. You can pre-order on Kickstarter with expected arrival in September 2020.
Makeway is a DIY marble course kit that provides endless hours of fun.
The modular elements can stick to any magnetic surface allowing you to build anywhere.
