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