Conectaballs is gaining attention and taking the world by storm! It is both a puzzle and a building toy. It can be connected in virtually unlimited combinations to create numerous geometric figures, such as pyramids, cubes, and various free-form multi dimensional structures. Conectaballs is already being used in math summer camps and schools to supplement the curriculums with a fun and educational puzzle!
Conectaball’s beauty is in its simplicity – eight balls join together on a string to allow endless possibilities.
Conectaballs is a wooden puzzle toy by Leo Bragdinsky. Leo is an avid skier, kayaker, mountain biker, basically an adrenalin junkie! In his spare time, Leo is a software engineer, with a love of mathematics and the beauty of well designed code. When he is not climbing mountains, Leo also enjoys teaching children how to code. While playing with his own daughter, Leo discovered that his love of mathematics and toys could be combined..hence Conectaballs was invented. By using the area of mathematics called Graph Theory Leo created Conectaballs to intrigue adults and children alike. They became so addictive, his friends wouldn’t return his prototypes! Playing with Conectballs for a short period of time, is like eating only one chip, it is just not possible!

“I’m a builder, a fixer, and a do-it-myselfer. My favorite things in life are big tools, old wood, good pasta, and finding great materials in a dumpster. I grew up in California, and blindly moved to New York seven years ago when I was accepted into art school for sculpture. I instantly fell in love with the grungy part of Brooklyn, and within a month, we had moved into Bedstuy. I have lived in the same apartment for five years now, which has given me plenty of time to slowly “fix” a few things around the house: de-carpet stairways, tile in kitchen… you name it!” - Ariele Alasko
Rue de Meaux Housing is a low income social housing project. “Architect Renzo Piano teamed up with Desvigne and Dalnoky to design an amazing courtyard space for their project in Paris. A modular architectural design establishes a background for the small forest of birch trees. The thin birch canopy creates a diaphanous lighting condition while still obstructing views across the courtyard, thereby providing the inhabitants access to both privacy and light.” - http://ayounghare.wordpress.com
