roBlocks (now Cubelets)

roBlocks small robot block constructionsroBlocks are the modules of a computational construction kit to scaffold learning math, science and control theory. By combining sensor, logic and actuator blocks, children can build simple reconfigurable robots that exhibit surprisingly complex behavior. roBlocks are self-describing, so they can provide helpful feedback to the user, and automatically adjust their functionality based on how they’ve been assembled. Modular Robotics, a spin-off company from the CoDe lab, is bringing this project to market, under the name Cubelets.
