rand name uses the same initials, honoring this fundamental and innate human characteristic which empowers us to perform astonishing technological feats. Our children are gifted with this power and through creative play they learn how to exploit it. ENGINO® TOY SYSTEM is perhaps the most advanced and versatile three dimensional construction toy in the market today, offering unique opportunities for creation for both children and adults alike.
The toy comprises of a system of multi-faceted rods and connectors that share some unique geometrical features that allow connectivity up to 6 sides simultaneously! In essence, this patent-pending design transforms rods into connectors, leading to builds that may be either dense or with large openings.
This feature alone enables children to build fast and easy, simple or complex models, using a very low number of different components and a much lower quantity of parts.
01. BUILDING IN ONE DIRECTION
The rods can be connected in-line without the intermediate need of a connector, almost reducing to half the quantity of parts required to build models.
02. BUILDING IN TWO DIRECTIONS
While the assembled rod looks uniform with nothing protruding, it may provide building directions vertically and sideways by simply snap fitting another rod to one of the bi-directional side cavities. This innovative design allows snap assembly on both sides simultaneously and greatly enhances the expandability of the System.
03. BUILDING IN THREE DIRECTIONS
The System is capable of tackling with the same ease all other building directions! All directions of the 3D space are accessible by combining the rods with the various types of connectors.
04. CONNECTING IN FIXED ANGLES
While ENGINO® SYSTEM is the easiest method to build models that need connections of 90°, it is equally functional when attempting to build more complex models that require connections of 45°
Structures consisting of right angle triangles can easily be created, ideally with side lengths of 15 units. The advantage of ENGINO® SYSTEM is that the 2D structure may at any time be converted to 3D without needing any additional connectors The TEE and ELBOW connectors provide a change in the plane of building, without having any elements protruding. The model may be modified at any time and there is no need to substitute the connectors with different ones. This not only reduces the number of different parts required to make a model but adds to the simplicity and functionality of the System.
06. CONNECTING EVERYWHERE
Although ENGINO® rods can behave as bricks achieving various lengths, these are restricted by the size of the smallest part. But where all other construction systems fail, ENGINO® can do the job! Now, any length is possible with the patent-pending extendable rods. This amazing feature when combined with the pivoted joints can lead to the creation of any triangular shape and to constructions that were previously inconceivable. The extendable rod replaces the need of numerous other components and maximizes the building capabilities of the System.
07. CONNECTING IN EVERY ANGLE
The potential of the System is unleashed by “cloning”the innovative geometries to pivoted joints . A specially designed component is free to swing around the pivot part allowing any angle of the 3D space to be created.
• Expandable at any time, in any direction, in any angle!
• Rods are also connectors!
• All parts snap-fit and stay together!
• Any length is possible!
• Built “big and easy”!
• Simple to use!
• Maximized modification capabilities!
• Low number of different parts!
• Fewer components can build more models!
• Creative and Educational!
The optimized design of ENGINO® components consists of only 18 different types of multi-functional parts. Even though the System's building capabilities surpass other conventional toys by far, another range of components has been developed to enable children to build fully functional engineering models of Simple and Complex machines. Following the same design principles of the basic system, a range of different type of gears, pulleys, axles and accessories now complements ENGINO® TOY SYSTEM making it the ideal constructional toy for home or school.
