Temperature Cubelet

Details

Detect heat! Add to any Cubelets kit to extend your robot.

The Temperature Cubelet contains a tiny thermometer (actually, a thermistor) that detects temperature. It's calibrated to output a 0 in freezing conditions and 255 in hot, sunny conditions of about 35C.

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.
