The 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 little cube once more.
Areaware and the David Weeks Design studio based the design of their range of Cubebots on Japanese Shinto Kumi-ki puzzles, which were essentially wooden interlocking puzzles. Made from dyed cherry wood, this Cubebot is a twist on the classic toy robot, and fuses together ancient traditions with modern toy art.
The Cubebot is pretty awesome!
