Linden Lab® Acquires Blocksworld

Linden Lab announced in a press release on Thursday January 24, 2013, that they have acquired the Blocksworld building toy from the Swedish company Boldai.

Blocksworld is a tool created for iPad "in which players use cubes, wedges, rockets, wheels, motors and more to easily create 3D models of anything they can imagine - from race cars to animals to robots and more. These models come alive with realistic physics simulation, and users can play, interact with, or even explode their creations."

“Blocksworld is a great fit with what we do at Linden Lab,” said Rod Humble, CEO of Linden Lab. “It’s a very user-friendly complement to our portfolio of shared creative spaces. We’re happy to have the Blocksworld team join Linden Lab and are looking forward to bringing Blocksworld to the App Store worldwide soon!”

It will be interesting to see what this leads up to. Will my darling Lindens integrate it in someway into their flagship SecondLife, I cannot help wondering?
