More and more additions from iLegos

iLegos is proposing new elements, for you to add at your Pneumatic TECHNIC constructions.

The new product range includes LEGO compatible costum color hoses (red, blue, yellow, clear and white). These have the same internal and external diameters as original silicone LEGO hoses and complement the iLegos standard offer of 'black' and 'light bluish gray' hoses.

With hoses like these, you can:
- Decorate your construction with colored hoses according specific model needs or your interest.
- Easily identify different air flow circuits by color.

iLegos is also proposing costum pneumatic hose junction elements with 'T', 'Y' and 'L' form factors. This is an extended offer in comparation with LEGO standard 'T' element, which may help you to achieve optimized hoses distribution, specially for the 'Y' parts and 'L' parts (this would also allow to pass hoses through tight curved spaces).
All parts are offered in trans-clear color, as seen at photo on the side and are compatible with standard LEGO hoses in terms of sizes i.e. hose diameters).

All above mentioned products, can be found here.

They once again manage to come up with what LEGO should have made! The hoses aren't very important because non-LEGO variants, like aquarium hoses, can be used, but the junction pieces are a very welcome addition.
I wonder when will they begin manufacturing junctions with more than 3 exits? A "cross" junction, for example, would avoid the need for two "T"/"Y" junctions and the extra tubing required.

Also, since they do electrics and pneumatics, I wonder if they'll ever do a 9V/Power Functions compressor and valve, just in case LEGO doesn't realise our need for such integrated components...

Well, don't think Mauricio will!

The junctions are 3rd party, from a different market segment and adopted for LEGO usage.

Minimotor was possible to make because it just uses a few of the shelf LEGO parts, with a specific motor.

A PF compressor or a valve would be a totally different story...

Alex,

those hoses differ a lot from aquarium ones, mainly because of their colors.

The colors could bring great looking to the pneumatic MOCs. A great addition depending on the use we are looking for ;-)
