The Micro Cubebot is the Rubik Cube of robots. He arrives in your hands as a
cube and, with a little patience (and a little dexterity) he transforms
into a robot - just not the kind you'd expect!
We all know that robots run on batteries and are made from imposing
metal...but not Areaware's Micro Cubebot! He doesn't need oiling or
recharging, and won't go all Terminator on you. In fact, he's pretty
chilled out. He can hold hundreds of poses, and when playtime is over
you can fold him up into a tiny cube once more.
Areaware and the David Weeks Design studio based the design of the Micro
Cubebot on Japanese Shinto Kumi-ki puzzles, which were essentially
wooden interlocking puzzles. Made from cherry wood, the Cubebot is a
twist on the classic toy robot, and fuses together ancient Japanese
traditions with modern toy art.
The Cubebot is pretty awesome!
