Details

Manual control! Add to any Cubelets kit to extend your robot.

The Knob Cubelet has a potentiometer embedded in one of its faces. It outputs a 0 when turned fully counterclockwise, and a 1 when turned clockwise.

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.
