Make Magazine is always a great source of inspiration for tinkering-oriented people like me.
In this post, Make introduces the Cubelets from ModRobotics: a great educational tool for kids and adults alike! Just like Lego, but with some brain too!
Cubelets are a robotic construction system from Modular Robotics. Using color coded cube modules, a maker can create a robot from snap together pieces that contain sensors, logic circuits, or “actions”. When attached together, the modules communicate via i/o built into the connector. Cubelets seem like they’d be the perfect introduction to robotics because you could easily get started creating robots without having to pick up a soldering iron.
