A design company based in Cape Town, South Africa has come up with the Nimuno Loops, which is essentially a roll of toy block tape that can turn any surface into a building base compatible with construction toy pieces from Lego, Mega Bloks and Kre-O.

The patent-pending Nimuno Loops, fondly dubbed as Lego tape, is flexible and can be used to make curved roads and round corners. It can also be cut down to any size or shape for more custom functions. As the tape can be attached to any surface such as walls, it allows 3D and gravity-defying creations reminiscent of Christopher Nolan's Inception.

Nimuno Loops now comes with a receiver part, which is similar to the bottom of popular toy blocks. When the top part and the receiver part is attached to one another, a full block is formed.

Nimuno's crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo has been quite successful, earning more than $1.5 million, almost 20,000 percent of its original $8,000 goal.

The brainchild of Ole Kirk Christiansen, Lego bricks have long been one of the most beloved and sought-after toys by both children and adults since its release in 1947 up to the present. Last 2016, the company hit £4.4 billion in sales, the highest revenue reached in its 85-year history. This number is expected to grow, albeit slowly, with plenty of Lego films and TV series continuously refreshing the mature brand.
