Build Your Social Network!

I want this NOW! The Tomodachi (Japanese for “friends”) Block is a modular system of playful blocks that each connect wirelessly to the internet to stream live video and audio of your friends from around the world. Each individual block is dedicated to a single friend who’s picture and voice are broadcast through a single speaker and iPod nano-sized screen built into each block. An internal sensor detects when blocks have been combined so the user can pile them up to group chat!
