I don’t think we’ve seen the last of the Brick-o-matic in America.
There’s no way to go wrong with the company’s latest effort, the BrickFrame, a frame that comes complete with a full-size brick that can be used as a door, door frame, or window frame.
The company claims to be able to repair or replace almost any existing piece of brick, and you can pick one up from a brickyard for about $10.
The BrickFrame is powered by solar panels that last for about six months, but it’s also available with batteries.
The system costs about $200, and the company offers a $30 credit for the installation.
It’s a bit pricey, but I can’t imagine many people would spend $10 on a brick if it wasn’t going to be a great investment.
I’ve been trying to get in touch with BrickFrame about the new BrickFrame for a while, and they have a good response.
You can see a video of the project in action in the above video, and I spoke with CEO Mark Stoehr about it a bit in my previous article, where I described the Brickframe’s “easy-to-install, easy-to keep-in-place, and safe-from-pest protection features.”
The company says the BrickFrames can also be used for more than just door frames, and it promises a lot of functionality beyond the door frame.
I’ll leave you with the video of Stoehrer demonstrating the system in action, as well as a video showing off its built-in Wi-Fi hotspot: As you can see in the video, the system uses the BrickCamera to monitor and control the entire structure of the frame.
You’ll need to take your camera with you wherever you go, and there’s also a built-ins Bluetooth, GPS, and WiFi antenna.
This is a great option for people who need to travel more frequently or don’t want to lug a bulky Wi-fi router around.
For those of us who want a little more flexibility in our space, the company says it’s offering two different brick sizes.
You get a full size, or a smaller, more compact brick that you can store in the back of your closet or a storage box.
In the video above, you can also see the BrickScanner, a device that will scan the brick and tell you whether the brick is safe or not.
This can be handy for people that need to check a brick before they tear it down or install it.
I’m still unsure if the BrickFrames are compatible with a lot more of the wall and ceiling tiles in my house, but we’ll be keeping an eye on this space to see how they handle those issues.
In short, this is a terrific system, and if you’re looking for a better brick than the Brick Frame you’ll probably want to look elsewhere.
The brick is available for preorder now on the company site, and is available at select brickyards for about half of the price.
