‘linkki’ modular toy by eunyoung park is a kinetic construction gadget based on planar linkage mechanism with which users can design actions, make kinetic arts and learn basic science, engineering and mathematics by hands-on playing. consisting of a modular box, bars and circles, and active modules, ‘linkki’ simplifies the technical construction toy to such an extent as to look minimal but still retains the versatility of construction blocks as an educational tool and designer’s prototyping tool. the project by eunyoung park was part of MA thesis at aalto university school of arts, design and architecture

made from birch plywood, PLA, and metal, there are 16 types of bars with four different shapes and circles of two different sizes. the kit includes three types of motors – a full rotation version that spins with a constant speed when users push a button, a limited rotation device that revolves to and fro between the angles set by a knob, and an interactive motor that moves according  the wifi signal sent from the sensor unit.
