I just discovered that the K-nex like building set I have isn't K-nex! The pieces I have are larger and are made of a softer material. They work well for children in the 2-5 yo range. Would anyone know what these pieces are called? The 1000 pieces of K-nex are going to have to wait a few years..... Thank you in advance.

I would like to know if any of you have anything you want to see on the website that is made out of knex since I'm bored and want to make something but don't know what. Anyone have an idea. I'm good at making games out of knex.
Question by Danielzxzx1 8 years ago | last reply 8 years ago
Http://www.kbotworld.com/ I was bored and decided to google "Knex". What I found was very interesting. Apparently there are competitions for Knex robots that do battle with each other. As I read this I thought about how us Knex gunners at Instructables could easily dominate these competitions; because we are the kings of Knex warfare. We could have a collaboration group based around K*bots, where we will post ideas and eventually have designs for the ultimate robot. Then when the competitions come around we could find somebody who lives closest to the competition to build the robot and enter on behalf of our collaboration.But there's a catch: There are rules, an one rule states that projectile weapons are banned. But I believe there are ways around this, as the exact ruling on this goes:"Projectile weapon systems which can launch a K'NEX part clear off the K*bot are banned due to safety reasons. Any other weapons systems which the organizers deem too dangerous will also not be permitted." This could easily be avoided by fixing the projectiles to the robot. For example: My cannon could use an extremely long bullet that has rods in the back of it, preventing it from ever leaving the robot while still delivering a deadly impact. But don't forget that weapons NOT based on guns will also be essential.So what do the rest of you think?

Well, I am pretty tight on time at the moment, but the video should explain things pretty well until I can do so here. here will also be many more pictures of the K-3 and Kinetic Shotgun, but I just need some time for those too. As for the K-4: Everything worked the way it was designed to work, but certain mechanisms (the trigger and the BTS) required a lot of force to function, thus reducing the amount of tension that would be even remotely practical to use on the bow. It was a good attempt and I have learned a lot from it; things that I will take with me as I move on to bigger and better guns. Here's a video for now, and I will explain everything in depth as soon as I can.

Hello everyone I was browsing the web and I found this http://www.toynews-online.biz/news/read/k-nex-to-enter-blaster-sector-in-2015-with-new-k-force-brand/043591 It sounds like k'nex is going to make toy blasters that can be taken apart and customized so that you can make you own knex nerf combo. What do you all think of knex making knex guns that shoot foam darts? is this something that you think is a good move for Knex? Just wanted to spread the news that i found on the web to see what you all think. Update here is a link to a website with close up pix and more info http://www.blasterlabs.com/2015/01/new-k-force-build-and-blast-product-images/

Here are two knex walking machines of mine. Neither are bad, but both aren't great. I Might post the second one if I can make it better. They are both powered by two Knex Powerpacks. The first video is of the smaller one, and the second and third are the larger one.

What has happened to all of the good knex guns and weaponary. If you took the quality of all the Killer K Copys and put it together we could make an ultimate knex gun. I was Just thinking wouldnt it be good if there was a contest on the ultimate knex gun or weapon (Sword etc)

Build a knex gun that doesnt require any green rods and is a true trigger.... Are you up to the challenge? 1st place - A preview of some of my knex guns and knowing that you got first place 2nd place - Knowing that you got second place 3rd place - Knowing that you got third place Note: preview may be delayed because of my cameras that have been shot and destroyed by my knex guns..... Due to terrible accidents so preview will be delayed for a very.... very LONG TIME Im gonna get a camera that wont break hopefully and takes beautiful pictures ;D! Hopefully one of my knex guns or oodalumps cannon modded by me doesnt misfire when i drop it again.... That WOULD SUCK! I cant take new pictures of the modded spider massacre v 3.0 cause of the description above so... look at drummerians crossbow... ish ... ? sorta not really I made two so i decided to turn it into a sniper ish thing? o well its an old picture if i remember correctly... Good luck building a knex gun without using and green rods...
