Contains a motor and roller wheels for moving on a horizontal surface. The Drive Cubelet only moves in one direction, slowing to a stop with a value of zero and moving faster with higher input values.
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 FAQ for safety questions.
Cubelets are assembled in Boulder, CO from components made all over the world.
