Kids don’t need to learn how to code to construct robots with Cubelets.
The blocks have embedded magnets which let them snap together to form robots of any shape. Each block has a small computer inside it and can communicate with its neighboring cube.
“This makes Cubelets unique. It is a group of lots of little blocks, each with its own brain,” explained Eric Schweikardt, CEO and founder of Modular Robotics.
The blocks have different functionalities: They might be programmed to feel temperature and light, or have little motors to help them move around.
Cubelets (priced between $157 and $500) are already available in stores.
