Just when you thought your childhood Lego days did nothing for you except build your brain up (which, oh, is a great thing), here's something you can try your skills on.

Quirky's new modular Crate system lets you connect and stack these containers to create the shelving unit you need. Plus other accessories like hooks, casters, cables and even stuff like white boards can be added to expand the functionality of your modular furniture. How cool is that?

There isn't a hint about pricing just yet, but these Lego-like shelves will go into production any time now and is expected to be available in three month's time.
