Cubelets

Cubelets is a great way to teach your geekling or other kids in your family the fun that comes from robotics. This cool system is modular cubes with each one having one use, interaction or behavior and by linking together, you will be able to create an easy to understand robot with impressive behavior. Eric Schweikardt, the creator of Cubelets, explained, “Cubelets was originally called roBlocks and was a project I worked on while in grad school for architecture at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh,” and went on to say, “I started to add more functionality into the different cubes and Cubelets evolved out of that. I never intended to make and sell a product, but after the 20th lab visitor asked when they could buy them, I started to warm to the idea.”
