About this project

 

  

 

Introducing Cubroid, the world’s easiest programming block set that allows children to explore the world of technology and gain exposure to programming! Through dynamic connective blocks and simple programming, Cubroid offers a fun and educational experience for children to express their creativity.

 

 Cubroid blocks are seamlessly compatible with Lego blocks! In order to diminish the amount of restrictions that young creators face, we wanted them to be able to connect with Legos to enhance the structures of their own robots.

In comparison to other programming modular sets, Cubroid is impressively easy-to-use and designed for the optimal innovative experience. With Cubroid, children have the opportunity to build robots and then bring their creations to life! We have designed Cubroid to be compatible with Lego blocks, so that young creators won’t face innovative restrictions.

Assemble in any direction and order like Legos!


Experience easy and fun programming through intuitive programming apps.


Playing with Cubroid will help grow your child's creativity.
 


With Cubroid, you can learn Scratch in a fun and easy way.

 


The more Legos you connect, the more creative you can be with your robot.

 

  

 

 

                     

 

Cubroid’s control programming application enhances the educational aspect of Cubroid by allowing children to control and prompt movement in their robot creations. Each Cubroid block comes with built-in Bluetooth capabilities that enable wireless communication.

Cubroid can be connected to a block programming software program called "Scratch" from MIT Media Lab. Scratch is an in-depth programming application that will prompt you to take your programming skills to the next level. Cubroid can be operated through the Scratch programming platform when the master block is connected to a PC with a USB cable. Scratch Mode is recommended for more advanced users that are working to really hone in on their programming abilities.

For those moments you don’t want to have to control your robot, there is an Automatic Mode that is operated through sensors. There is no need for a PC or smartphone with Auto Mode, as simple movements are programmed into the master block’s functions. As long as the robot contains the master block, Auto Mode will be available.

 

  

  • Strong material
    Cubroid blocks use polycarbonate material in order to provide the best light resistance, heat resistance, and impact strength.
  • Durability
    The blocks have been tested to resist external impact.
  • Safety
    The blocks have also been designed to eliminate the risk of swallowing or injury.

 The Master Block is the control center of virtually any robot that one can build with Cubroid! With the Master Block, you can easily switch between the different modes and functions.

We currently provide our programming and control application on Androids and iPhones. In order to program the movements of your robot, use the simple programming function.

 

 

Our app also allows you to directly control your robot through our virtual remote control.

  

 

The possibilities are practically endless when it comes to what you can construct with Cubroid! But here are some of our favorite creations for you to try! 

 

 

 

 

 

    

 

 

 

  

 

 

  

 

  

 

 

 

  

 

 

 

      

 

 We hope children will learn programming a fun and easy way with Cubroid. Both children and parents are unfamiliar with computer language but they are interested in learning how to code. Children can be creative and expanding logical thinking by utilizing programming. It is natural that they seek fun. So we are looking for learning to play in the play with the cubroid to play and play like a toy. Cubroid provides new innovation that associates having fun with learning in the form of programming. 

 

 

 

 Our educational experts and engineers have been planning and developing Cubroid for three years. We have done so many field tests in about 20 schools, 100 homes, and also exporting samples abroad. We are constantly improving our quality, hardware and software problems. We are also developing educational applications to provide high degree of freedom and variety educational contents.

Risks and challenges

We are currently developing an application that offers users a high degree of freedom. We will be launching a new controlling application that will be available for iPads on February 2018, and we currently provide our programming and control application on Androids and iPhones.
We are prepared for any future inconveniences and delays. Depending on the demand of our product, small delays may occur; however, we will be completely transparent with our backers, so you will know exactly what is going on. We place ourselves on a high standard and believe that backers should be rewarded with great products.
