WHAT

Tangeez are a set of light-up building blocks that change COLOR as you stack them.  Circular in shape, individually powered and internally ILLUMINATED, Tangeez are both an interactive toy and design object.

Stack them together to create a SPECTRUM of colors that change as you rearrange.

 

 

 

INFO

Tangeez were born out of the desire to make “interactivity” simple, beautiful, and tangible. Tangeez use the same RGB (red, green, blue) color system as the screens all around us, but these “physical pixels” create a tactile, interactive and often social experience.


One Tangee can’t work on its own. It needs another Tangee–or a base plate–to ILLUMINATE.


Each Tangee has three prongs on the top, three holes on the bottom, and one three-color LED in the middle. Connect one prong and you’ll see one color–red, green, or blue, depending on the hole you choose. Two prongs mixes two colors…three prongs, three colors. The more you change and rearrange, the more colors you create.

Colorful

Tangeez can create seven different colors depending on how their holes and prongs are combined.

 


Portable

Tangeez are 2.5” in diameter and 1.5” tall. They fit right in your hand and can go anywhere you go.

 


Earth Loving

Tangeez are made of plastic that’s recyclable and are powered by rechargeable batteries.

 

 


Modular

Tangeez can be stacked in multiple configurations. They can get as tall or wide as you want.


Rugged

Tangeez are made for hands-on use. From kids, to cars, to camping, to cars, Tangeez are ready to play?


Born in Brooklyn

Tangeez are born and raised in the Brooklyn, NY and manufactured in the USA.


Bright

Tangeez encourage creativity, fine motor skills, hand-eye coordination and problem solving from a young age. They’re also pretty cool to hang out with.
