Company Modular Robotics has designed a clever new robotic toy for kids called Cubelets. These Cubelets are robotic building blocks with different in-built functions.
When put together, these blocks interact with each other, behaving according to programmed functions. This creates really funny, unexpected little gadgets that drive around, react to movement, make noise and act as a flashlight. These Cubelets really look like the future of the toys, ensuring kids an interesting learning experience and plenty of fun.
Implications - Toy concepts have shifted towards the educational. Instead of simple action figures and dolls, Companies are moving towards instructive playthings to get kids more involved and interested in learning. Products with a combination of both entertaining and educational characteristics will become profitable because they attract parents.
