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 behavior. There are currently 15 Cubelets, including Battery, Brightness, Distance, Drive, Flashlight, Inverse, Knob, Rotate, Speaker, and Temperature. By configuring them in different ways, amazing robots can be quickly created.
Each Cubelet is programmable so the behavior can be specifically changed and controlled through software. ModRobotics is also currently developing a proprietary programming environment with a User Interface that offers a simple scripting language as well as a detailed programming language.
Pretty awesome – we think so!!
