FoxyBuugeng redesign

How classic meme says, “Aw sh*t, here we go again.” Another revision on our journey to perfect buugengs. But this time with help of professional.

We started cooperation with Manuel Maes (check out his website, he’s awesome! -> and with his help we decided to do some significant changes to our design.

Most visible change would be symmetrical design. Oh yes, we made our buugengs foldable and symmetrical.

It went hand-in-hand with getting rid of magnetic interlock mechanism. It was nice and all but those magnets were either too weak to hold together or too strong so buugengs affected when put close together. It’s fine as long you hold each in hand but once you tried play with both in one hand, it started to be slightly annoying.

So we reworked that as well to our original idea of notched design but this time with tiny magnets just strong enough to keep halves together but not interfere with other buugengs around.

Another change is change of shape. Lots of you tried to tell us that but we couldn’t quite put our finger on what’s wrong with it but Manuel did. So new version will be longer and flatter when compared to original shape. I am really looking forward to that, it’s first major shape change.

And that’s pretty much it for now. See you next time and stay awesome!
