Cubelets


"Cubelets are the perfect tool to explore robotics. Cubelets are a groundbreaking robot construction system designed for budding innovators ages four and up. Cubelets were designed to teach the big lessons behind complex systems, design thinking, and emergence with tiny robots. Cubelets come complete with everything inventors young and old need to start building robots. The included Brick Adapters connect to your favorite brick-based construction systems bringing vivid motion and life to the toys you already own." 
-- Modular Robots

Helpful Information About Cubelets

Important:
  • Do not attempt to take Cubelets apart, submerge, burn, puncture, crush, microwave, expose Cubelets to extreme heat or fire, or connect the battery Cubelet to more than one power source.
  • Not for use by children under the age of 4.
  • Keep Cubelets out of the dirt. Magnetic particles will stick to them and damage them.
 
Cleaning: Turn off the battery Cubelet and unplug them. Use a soft cloth moistened with water to wipe them off. Do not use anything except water, spray water directly on the Cubelets, or let moisture enter any openings.
 
Getting Started with Cubelets: Turn on the battery by moving the little switch on the side up. The light will flash green and it’s ready to go.
Battery Charging: If the green light doesn’t come on, charge the battery with the micro USB cable and any USB port or the 5-port charger in the kit.
 
Types of Cubelets:
Sense Cubelets are inputs, like our eyes and ears. These Cubelets are black.
Think Cubelets calculate, they do math or computation. These Cubelets come in different colors.
Act Cubelets are outputs, they do things like move or light up. These Cubelets are clear.
