Standard cubelet kit with 20 magnetic blocks
Designed for people of age 4 and older
Each cubelet has a tiny computer inside
The Cubelets Standard Kit comes with 20 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, objects, and temperature, 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 in the kit has different equipment on board and a different default behavior. There are Sense Cubelets that act like our eyes and ears; they can sense light, temperature, and how far they are away from other objects. Just like with people, the senses are the inputs to the system. On the flip side, the Action Cubelets act as outputs. They do things. Some have little motors inside of them so that they can drive around or spin one of their faces. There are Cubelets that make noise, shine a flashlight, or display their information through a light-up bar graph.
Each Cubelet has a tiny computer inside of it and is a robot in its own right. When you put blocks 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. If you make a simple robot by connecting a Brightness Sense Cubelet to a Speaker Action Cubelet, they'll start to talk, and when the light in the room gets brighter, the Speaker will get louder.
