Cubelets Robotic Kit

Making robots may look like it is difficult to achieve. It requires special knowledge of robotics to do so. However, there are experts in this field that are trying to make it easy for people to understand the world of robotics better. Instead of trying to explain it repeatedly, they make toys like the Cubelets Robotic Kit to make even kids to learn all about robotics.

The Cubelets Robotic Kit comes in a set of cubes that you can attach together in a variety of way to make your robot. At first glance, you might think that it is just a set of simple building blocks since they seem to look the same. As you look closer, you will notice that the cubes come with different features. That is because the cubes come with different functions.

The Cubelets Robotic Kit comes with six cubes that you can attach with one another. The set comes with two Action blocks composed of one drive and one flashlight. There are also two Sense blocks, one functioning with sensors for brightness and one with sensors for distance. There are also two Think blocks, one battery and one passive. You can combine the cubes in different ways to create robots that function in different ways. The Cubelets Robotic Kit comes with instructions on how to make the basic combinations for making functional robots. The rest will be up to your imagination. The cubes come with materials that are free of lead, making them safe for kids. It also comes with rechargeable batteries, with the charger sold separately. Kids from four years old and up can play with this robotic kit. It is available at ThinkGeek for US$160. You can buy the charger separately for US$15.
