Did you know that the creators of an adhesive tape with LEGO-compatible studs are from Cape Town? Clinton Matos of HTXT Africa has the full story.
In the past few days the world has become enamoured with the Indiegogo campaign for Nimuno Loops – an adhesive tape with LEGO-compatible studs that promises you the ability to stick bricks to any flat surface.
The campaign has blown past its modest $8 000 (~R100 000) goal and is currently sitting on $1 048 181 (~R13 million) raised from almost 30 000 backers with 26 days still to go.
While everyone is now familiar with the product and the company behind it – Team Nimuno – they may not know that the people behind the project are from Cape Town, South Africa.
Creators Max Basler and Anine Kirsten work for Chrome Cherry Design Studio (CCDS) with Team Nimuno being a division of that company.
The cheapest way to get a taste of Nimuno is the $11 (~R14) tier which gets you two rolls of the sticky stuff. This is 15% Off of the RRP of $12.99 (~R166).
Estimated delivery for the backer rewards is July of this year with Team Nimuno understandably under the gun after the immense initial success of the project.
