Remote control or reprogram! Add to any Cubelets kit to extend your robot. The Bluetooth Cubelet contains a tiny Bluetooth radio that you can pair with your Android device or PC.
With Cubelets Control running on your Android device, you can override Action Cubelets and remote control your robot. Drive it around on the floor like a radio control car or turn the Flashlight and Speaker Cubelets on from the next room. Communication works the other way too: you can read data from Sense Cubelets remotely. We can finally determine with absolute certainty whether the light in the fridge goes out when the door is closed!
With Cubelets Code running in a browser on your laptop or PC, you can connect to a robot, see which Cubelets are connected, see the program that they're running, and reprogram any or all of your Cubelets over wireless.
The Bluetooth Cubelet isn't compatible with Macs or iOS devices.
Anyone can build robots that drive around on a tabletop, respond to light and other objects, and have surprisingly lifelike behavior. Instead of programming that behavior, you snap the Cubelets together and watch the behavior emerge like with a flock of birds or a swarm of bees. Each Cubelet has a tiny computer inside of it and is a robot in its own right. When you put Cubelets together, you're actually making a robot out of several smaller robots. Each Cubelet communicates with its neighbors, so you know that if two blocks are next to each other, they're talking.
- For ages 4 and up.
- Cubelets are lead free. Please see our FAQ for safety questions.
- Cubelets are assembled in Boulder, CO from components made all over the world.

Connect your Cubelets to your phone or tablet!
Cubelets control is a mobile app that connects to a Bluetooth Cubelet. it does two things: it can remote control up to six Cubelets, and it can also read their values. So you can communicate both ways with your Cubelets robot: read and write.
Compatibility: Cubelets Control only runs on Android devices. We're planning on releasing an iOS app at some point but this is not it. We've had great results testing Control on a Nexus One, a Samsung Something-or-other, and a Lenovo mini-tablet. If you find a problem and post some debugging or compatibility information in the forum, we promise to try and fix it quickly.
