hubs mini – model 2v dome kit, a fun toy for a budding engineer

by Build with Hubs from UK

$ 40

- +

The kit uses easy to cut paper drinking straws as sticks. Great for testing ideas, or just a fun toy for a budding engineer.

1. Cut your straws to length
2. Push connectors into straws
3. Start connecting!

Comes with 50 straws – enough to make a 45cm (18″) diameter dome with plenty of extras to experiment with. You also get 4 extra 6-way hubs to help with adaptation ideas.

Need more straws? The kit can be used with most standard (6mm) paper drinking straws, although we recommend buying a small number first to test the fit.


Age range?

We recommend the kit for age 6+.
There is a choking hazard due to small parts, so it’s definitely not for children age 3 or under.

Build with Hubs


We’re a small start-up hoping to enable budding Bucky’s to create their own dome-based something. We ran a Kickstarter campaign in 2015 to gain the funding for injection moulding tools and here we are! We’re looking forward to seeing the domes that people will create and we’d love to hear from you if you’ve ideas for how we can spread the word.
