Cubelets require no programming or wires and can perform a variety of actions.

Cubelets are small, modular blocks that children can assemble to make robots that exhibit a range of different behaviors. The blocks have no programming or wires and are easy to experiment with, creating various automatons that can travel around, rotate and respond to light or sound.

There are 15 different Cubelets currently available, with more to be released in the future. These are divided into three types: Sense, Action and Think blocks. You can snap the Cubelets together in any arrangement to create autonomous robots with different functions. Some provide battery power or have motors for movement, speakers or flashlights. Others have sensors that respond to distance, light, sound or temperature. Watch them in action in the video below:
