@NiallC nice work on moderation. Changing answers to comments is a great way to keep answers clean
if the answers are off topic of course!

@NiallC. are those really new?
 
@waxeagle I saw it on the internet... it must be true
 
heh :)
 
I haven't seen anything quite like them though; the closest I've seen IRL are concrete forms that interlock
 
yeah I'm not sure I've seen anything quite like that. Seems silly taht someone wouldn't have thought of it yet.
They wouldn't be hard to build molds for, but getting the tolerances right so they'd interlock might be tough
oh they're plastic. I was thinking they'd be concrete

@waxeagle My first thought was that Lego would probably be visiting real soon with a cease-and-desist
 
@NiallC. nope. the patent is expired
 
Didn't know that
 
yeah it's been expired for years
their market domination has to do with branding, product quality and IP licensing.
not with exclusivity
I assume they patent their new special piece designs for their sets, but the original standard lego block patent is the biggy
 
6:46 PM
btw they are kickstarting it: kickstarter.com/projects/togetherfarm/…

@waxeagle I saw that. I'm half-thinking of backing it
I have a raised-bed kit a friend gave me that is pretty nice: metal corner braces, just add lumber. I'll post a photo sometime I get around to assembling it.
 
@NiallC. nice. I've thought about getting one of those. I think raised beds are the way to go where I live
