Somehow I missed meeting Hunter Thompson at SXSWedu this week. Fortunately, I happened to pick up on a tweet that led to this article about the young man, who is the very smart 16-year-old behind Smallworks, a company that makes Lego brick cases for iPods, iPhones, and iPad minis.
If 16 sounds too young to be running a company, then you’re probably going to be even more surprised when I tell you that Hunter came up with the ingenious idea for these cases when he was 12. You can read more about Hunter, and see a video of an interview with him in this article. To purchase a Brick Case, you can go to Amazon or Thompson’s Smallworks website.
(Yes, I know I posted about Legos last Friday. And no, I actually am not a Lego fanatic. But this looks fun. And it is Phun Phriday. For some of the interesting creations people have made using these Brick Cases, check out their Flickr page, and be inspired!)
