The CHAIN Blocks system was created at prexLab, a project space of Prextron.

>  We love open source, CHAIN is a truely open system, users are free to adapt and innovate with it.

>  With the  Arduino  open source microcontroller 

system, it has a very large open knowledge base.

>  Breadboarding is replaced by the strip board aka Veroboard, a system very well established with many layout software.

>  Connections are standard 0.1 in/ 2.54 mm headers (unlike other blocks that use proprietary connection methods).


>  Finished prototype is a neat showpiece, we designed the case to be 3D printed with an FDM filament printer in PLA, the STL file is available for you to personalize using sketchup.
