Many people use their laptop lids as canvasses to express themselves with stickers and decorative skins. The Brik case for MacBooks takes things a step further and lets you customize it however you like with plastic LEGO-style bricks.

Currently raising funds on Kickstarter, the case comes with a bag of 100 1×1 bricks for $30 and ships internationally. It fits MacBook Air and Retina MacBook Pro models manufactured in 2012 or later, and is compatible with LEGO, Mega Bloks, PixelBlocks, KRE-O, and K’NEX bricks.

The team behind the Brik Case says that it’s easy to clip the brick plate on easily, and the 1×1 bricks allow you to slide your laptop in and out of bags without losing them.

Naturally, you can use bricks of various colors to create your own designs. What I find interesting is that you can also add functionality to your case by building a holder for things like business cards and pens.

If you’re particular about what you’d like to display on your case, you can pledge $300 to get bricks and instructions to recreate five custom designs.

If funded successfully, the Brik case will ship internationally this August.
