The CUBELETS Six Kit contains 6 Cubelets that can be snapped together to make an endless variety of robots with no programming and no wires. Anyone can build robots that drive around on a tabletop, respond to light and other objects, and have surprisingly lifelike behavior. Instead of programming that behavior, you snap the Cubelets together and watch the behavior emerge like with a flock of birds or a swarm of bees. Each Cubelet has a tiny computer inside of it and is a robot in its own right. When you put Cubelets together, you're actually making a robot out of several smaller robots. Each Cubelet communicates with its neighbors, so you know that if two blocks are next to each other, they're talking.
Action Cubelets: 1 Drive, 1 Flashlight
Sense Cubelets: 1 Brightness, 1 Distance
Think Cubelets: 1 Battery, 1 Passive
Recipe cards included to get you started.
Batteries included but not a charger. A charger is required to charge your Cubelets.
For ages 4 and up.
Cubelets are lead free.
We make modular robotic construction systems for kids because we believe that toys shape the way that children think about the world. Modular Robotics is headquartered in Boulder, Colorado, where we design, engineer and manufacture our robots. We are a spin-off from Carnegie Mellon University and are recipients of SBIR grant funding from the National Science Foundation. Modular Robotics designs, manufactures, and distributes innovative toy robot construction systems for children, adults, hobbyists, science centers, museums, and schools.
