Modular Robotics makes robot construction kits. By combining sensor, logic and actuator blocks, young kids can create simple reconfigurable robots that exhibit surprisingly complex behavior. The blocks are self-describing, so they can provide helpful feedback to the user, and automatically adjust their functionality based on how they've been assembled. The blocks are 40mm plastic cubes with magnetic connectors -- just pick them up and start building! Using just the blocks, you can create smart robots that sense, plan, and act. We expect to have a beta version of the construction kits for sale in 2009.
The Standard Kit has 24 blocks and contains an assortment of sensor, action, and operators blocks. With it, you can create mobile robots, logic constructions, and experiments.Action Blocks:
