Kids don’t need to know how to code to construct robots with Cubelets. Cubelets are robot blocks that combine to build thousands of thought-provoking robots. They’re a fast and easy way to inspire kids, as young as four, to become better thinkers!

Modular Robotics has released a new operating system for Cubelets called OS 4. It changes the way Cubelets communicate with each other and with connected devices. Cubelets OS 4 enables Cubelets to do everything they do now, only better!

There’s no wrong way to build with Cubelets, so it is remarkably easy to transform these blocks into brilliant bundles of robotic curiosity.

You don’t need to know how to code or wire to construct robots with Cubelets. Snap the robot blocks together and the magnetic faces do the rest. Every unique arrangement is a new robot with novel behaviors emerging from the construction. Invention made easy. While you don’t need to know how to code to play, you can code Cubelets to exhibit new behaviors using C.

Builders rejoice! Cubelets Brick Adapters let you pair with Lego® and other brick-based constructions to add new levels of detail and artistry to your robots. Brick Adapters come in two different styles, “studs” and “sockets” so you can build in any direction.

Ready to take your robots to the next level? Add a Bluetooth Cubelet to your construction to create responsive remote control robots or reprogram Cubelets to exhibit new behaviors. The blocks have embedded magnets that let them snap together to form robots of any shape. Each block has a tiny computer inside it and can communicate with its neighboring block.

“This makes Cubelets unique. It is a collection of lots of little blocks, each with its own brain,” said Eric Schweikardt, CEO and founder of Modular Robotics.

The blocks have different functionalities: They might be programmed to sense light and temperature, or have little motors to help them move around. There are currently 17 different cubelets: threshold, passive, rotate, speaker, knob, inverse, maximum, minimum, drive, flashlight, battery, distance, brightness, temperature, bar graph, Bluetooth, and blocker. Cubelets are already available in stores, priced between $157 and $500.
