Discovery Set- Better thinking through play.

The Cubelets Discovery Set is the perfect introduction to the world of Cubelets® robot blocks. Open a box of little robots that will intrigue, fascinate, and inspire builders for hours on end. A unique blend of hardware and software, Cubelets make it easier than ever to explore robotics, coding, and other big ideas.



Create

Little robots for building big imaginations. Cubelets robot blocks make it easy for builders of nearly any age to imagine, craft, and invent countless robot constructions.

Make

Just like building blocks, only smarter. Cubelets are little blocks of software inside little blocks of hardware. Each Cubelet has a special function, so how you assemble your robot changes its behavior. Every combination is a new creation.

Reinvent

Tactile coding. Cubelets make the principles of programming easy to learn and practice. Cubelets’ special combination of software and hardware means that as you build a robot you build a program. It’s hands-on coding!

How Cubelets Work- SENSE, THINK, ACT.

Each Cubelet has a special function and belongs to one of three categories: SENSE Cubelets take in information from the robot’s environment. THINK Cubelets compute and change that information, and ACT Cubelets turn that information into a physical action.



Cubelets’ magnetic faces make them simple to snap together and pull apart. Connect at least one SENSE, THINK, and ACT Cubelet to create a robot construction.

The yellow Brick Adapters connect to LEGO® and other brick building- block toys.

App Enhanced Robot Play- Introducing the Bluetooth® Hat.

The Bluetooth® Hat pairs robot constructions with mobile devices. Simple, proximity-based pairing makes connecting easy. Cap your creations with the Bluetooth® Hat to add new abilities using the free Cubelets app.

Here's what you get in the Discovery Set

  • One Battery Cubelet to provide the energy needed to power robot constructions.
  • One Brightness Cubelet to build robot constructions that navigate their world.
  • One Distance Cubelet to enable a construction to detect and respond to nearby objects.
  • One Flashlight Cubelet to create constructions that shine a dimmable LED light.
  • One Bluetooth Hat to Pair robot constructions with free companion apps.
  • Two Brick Adapters to Add style and expand building capabilities with LEGO® or other brick building toys.
  • A printed Discovery Guide and downloadable Parents’ Play Guide.
  • One Micro-USB Charging Cable




Recommended Ages.

Cubelets are recommended for builders ages 4 and up. Cubelets are intuitive enough for preschoolers to start building robots, but they scale in complexity, teaching new skills as kids grow. Cubelets are even loved and used in university computer science programs!

Battery Info

The key to every Cubelets construction is the Battery Cubelet. A fully charged Battery Cubelet can power up to 6 hours of playtime. Recharge the Battery using the included Micro-USB cable. When fully charged, the amber light on the Battery Cubelet will turn off.

Warranty Info

All Cubelets come with a one-year warranty from date of purchase*. This warranty covers unfortunate accidents — for instance, if your little robots end up in the bottom of the aquarium — and general hardware or software malfunction. If you are having an issue with your Cubelets, please visit our help page.
