About this project
PIXIO is a unique construction set in which pixio blocks are connected as you want, thanks to a well-thought-out system of powerful magnets. Finally, you can create in the style of pure pixel art without any visible fixing elements.
This is the easiest construction set to use.
Just take the pixio block in your hand and place it where you want it to be connected — BANG! — the pixio block is connected.
This construction set will be enjoyed by everyone who loves creativity, technology, design, games, and just fun.
Many construction sets are available, but we wanted to have one that looked perfect: without prominent connecting elements, no complicated parts of any kind, and that could be easily assembled and disassembled.
For this purpose, we chose the ideal shape — a cube, like a pixel in the digital world. At the same time, this is the most fundamental form and absolutely symmetrical volume object with an equal number of faces. It is perfect both mathematically and aesthetically. As connectors, we decided to use powerful magnets so that we could connect the blocks on any side.
One PIXIO is a plastic cube 8x8x8 mm in size, weighing just over 1 gram, inside of which are 6 powerful magnets. The polarity of the magnets are arranged in such a way that the cubes can be connected to each other in any sequence by different sides.
In PIXIO, we use Neodymium (Nd-Fe-B) magnets. They lose no more than 2% of their magnetic force in 50 years.
PIXIO is available in 16 colors: Red, Orange, Yellow, Light green, Green, Turquoise, Light blue, Blue, Violet, Pink, Tan, Light brown, Brown, Gray, Black, and White.
We are working on instructions for many hundreds of characters, and we will be ready to release an application that will clearly show how easy it is to create awesome items.
For each set of PIXIO, we will include instructions that show how easy it is to create with this construction set.
All the details of PIXIO are the same shape. Only the colors are different. This versatility allows you to create in any scale.
We also plan to create an application that will allow everyone to model themselves with varying levels of detail and then do it from PIXIO.
Our construction set allows you to create completely different things, ranging from your favorite characters to figures you invent.
A child more than 6 years old can easily use PIXIO to create anything. PIXIO is like Minecraft, only in real life.
Children can develop by using PIXIO to learn letters, numbers, and colors.
An important feature of PIXIO is that it allows you to create something cool very quickly. For example, a child can make a dinosaur in just 10 seconds.
Or your favorite dog in a minute.
But the main thing for the child is infinite creative self-expression, development of a fantasy, learning about the world, and having a sense of pride with the result.
PIXIO will provide children with many hours of joy, which will help them develop fine motor skills, attentiveness, and other useful talents.
PIXIO is suitable anywhere: at home, at school, at the office, or on a trip. The creative process brings pleasure, which results in bright emotions and a creative image.
You can create for fun or make various life hacks from the refrigerator or flipchart, accessories, or even a car.

For believing in our vision, we want to thank you! Check out our rewards below:
We have test samples, but for a large batch, we raise funds. When our goal has been achieved, we will make such a schedule.
PIXIO consists of two elements: plastic and powerful magnets. As a plastic for casting, we use ABS plastic of the highest quality with natural saturated colors. For magnets, we use neodymium magnets of the best quality N52. A little bit of magic and the perfect PIXIO construction set is ready.
If you play these games and have your favorite characters, you can make them from PIXIO and enjoy your favorite tricks in real life. As almost everything in these games is made from volume pixels (Voxel), your construction set will allow you to re-create them
If you don’t like toys, then PIXIO can be useful for relieving stress. Magnetic blocks connect so well that you can simply connect and disconnect them, keeping your hands busy. As a result, interesting abstractions can be created.
PIXIO is a wonderful gift for anyone. You will enjoy giving it to: a creative friend, a beloved girl, your own child or nephew, a colleague at work, or even yourself.
Be sure not to forget the holidays, especially Christmas and New Year’s Day.

A huge thank you to everyone who has supported us throughout our Pixio journey so far! We couldn't have done this without you!
Some things just appear, though, and this construction set should have just appeared in any case and bring joy to the world. We were just lucky that it chose us for its appearance. And this is the miracle of our amusing universe.
Risks and challenges
Our factory partners are ready to go. We’ve worked hard over the last several months to build up these relationships and expect to hit all of our delivery deadlines as planned.
With that said, there are inherent risks in the production process that may be beyond control. At any rate we will keep backers updated throughout the campaign and manufacturing phase to ensure that we stay as true as possible to the proposed delivery schedule.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
