Mini Robot Building Blocks Called Cubelets


Building robots is easy with these Cubelets, they piece together easily to produce a wide range of working robots. There is a starter kit that comes with six Cubletes, two sensors, two brains, two action blocks and a battery pack. However, there are larger kits available with twenty Cubelets and the potential to build something wonderful, but at $520 (£336), you would expect something special.

These are the features and specs for the Cubelets mini robot devices;

Cubelets are magnetic blocks that can be snapped together to make an endless variety of robots with no programming and no wires. You can build robots that drive around on a tabletop, respond to light, sound, and temperature, and have surprisingly lifelike behaviour. But instead of programming that behaviour, you snap the cubelets together and watch the behaviour emerge like with a flock of birds or a swarm of bees.

Price of the starter kit is $160 in the US and £103 in the UK
