At Studica, we really like robotics! We offer a wide variety of robotics tools. Today we will take a closer look at Cubelets. Created by Modular Robotics, these robot blocks inspire creative thinking. Since they are easy and you can build quickly, they are a great way to introduce the concepts of robot making. Designed for initiation, imagination, and inspiration, they offer a wonderful learn by play experience. They are used to help expand young minds across classrooms, museums, and camps.
What are Cubelets?
In the simplest terms, they are pre-programmed robot blocks. There are three main types of cubelets; think blocks, action blocks, and sense blocks. The majority of them have five connection faces plus a special face that identifies their function. Others will have six connection faces and their function can be identified by their color. A robot is defined as a machine that can sense its surroundings and act upon them.
Simply combine the Cubelets to create your robot. There is no programming required. What your robot does is determined by how you construct your robot. Plus, you do have the ability to code any Cubelet to do something new if you choose to. If you need an inspiration or just some practice to get yourself acclimated, there is a whole group of robot recipes to choose from. The video below will give you a better understanding of how this fascinating robot construction sets work.
More Robotics at Studica
As I mentioned above, we at Studica are really into robotics. So much so that we are Global Partners with WorldSkills International. We support and supply the official robotics kits for the Mobile Robotics skill competition. We also participate in a number of robotics competitions from FIRST Robotics Canada, Skills Ontario, and more. We offer a wide variety of products for robotics and automation from companies like fischertechnik Education, National Instruments, Makeblock, Wonder Workshop, Arduino, Sphero, Raspberry Pi, and others. Happy building!
