Created by a group of Munich industrial designers (think Eero Aarnio meets kids’ birthday party), this build-and-play mini-golf set is all neon-glow plastic and tough shots ― sort of the autobahn of the back nine. It includes 13 obstacles (from curves to bridges to loop-de-loops), one club, two balls and a scorecard. “We are working on a smaller version for early 2008” explained Hannes Weber, one of the designers and partners of defacto.GmbH. And it’s not just for indoors, he said: “We have tried it out some million times, and it works perfectly. You can play on every even surface such as grass, concrete, tarmac, wood floor, carpet or ice. My favorite is the ‘Acapulco,’ and it’s also the toughest one.”
