If you’re a builder already, you might find that your ideas are becoming stale. What if I told you that there was a way to breathe new life into your designs and to come up with even more ideas? Circuit Cubes are little tiles that can be added to your latest LEGO creation or to a used tube of toilet paper to make a fully functional product.
Circuit Cubes has three types of electronic building tiles: the Battery Cube, Motor Cube, and LED Cube. These blocks snap together three ways: horizontal, vertical, and diagonal. Use them to power a LEGO car or to make a pinwheel out of a piece of cardboard easily. Each piece is transparent so you can literally see the connections. It facilitates a better understanding of the circuits and how they are easily manipulated to change a design or function.
You can power a motor, create a light source, activate switches, or make a real life hack product to make a task easier. To get started, you choose any of the three kits available: Whacky Wheels Kit, Bright Lights Kit, and Smart Art Kit. Each kit comes with everything you need to make the suggested projects. You can build a monster truck or underwater rover with the Whacky Wheels kit, a light saber from Star Wars in the Bright Lights Kit, and even a carousel with the Smart Art Kit.
The ideas do not have to stop with the kits. Circuit Cubes has an entire portion of their website dedicated to really good ideas from their builders. With a suggested age range of builders eight and up, the possibilities seem endless on the types of vehicles and everyday products you can make. Sharing your project ideas with Circuit Cubes can get you featured and your design out there for other kids to try! Get building and start connecting those circuits!
