MAKE_Conference_Badge-CESI was so happy to see Modular Robotics at CES. They’re the makers of Cubelets, a modular robotic construction kit for kids that we’ve posted about before. Here at CES, they’re showing off their kits and Emily Plage was happy to give MAKE readers a demo. In the video above, she shows us a few of the cubes and the robots they’ve created with them. They have a new Bluetooth module which lets you control the bots with an Android phone or reprogram them via PC. They’re even showing a 3D-printed prototype of an adapter so that Cubelets can be used with Lego bricks.
