It’s fun, it’s challenging and it exercises the body as well as the brain. Vancouver designer Allison Chow has unveiled a device that uses play to tax the mind and exercise the legs.
Hipo is made out of birch and melamine. Chow routered the components herself. “Design has a way of making you an expert,” she says of her (forced) foray into carpentry. She had never routered before. Additional pieces and pegs can be inserted to complicate the game.
