They’re transparent and translucent. They interlock together to form a honeycomb structure that’s extremely durable. They can be used to build anything from buildings and fences to roofs and walls of light. So what are “they” referring to? They’re called POLLI-Bricks, and they’re a genius example of recycled bottle architecture.

Although these plastic bricks may not be as cool as the Heineken beer bottle interlocking bricks from Joe Laur’s One Million Buddhist Beers on the Wall, One Million Buddhist Beers…. blog post, these are a pretty cool close second! Created by the folks at miniWiz, these amazing plastic bricks are lighter than regular bricks, and they each hold a small volume of air inside of them that allow for perfect thermal insulation.

I love the fact that the bricks are solar-powered, and that they retain sunlight during the day to help illuminate them at night! Good looking, recycled and solar powered. POLLI-Bricks get a thumbs-up from me. To see videos that show the durability of these bricks, visit the original blog post.
