Traditionally, robot toys were made out of plastic and needed a battery. Not so does the Cubebot by areaware. Inspired by the Japan Shinto Kumi-ki puzzles, the designer David Weeks created his Cubebot out of cherry-tree wood.
Cubebot is a combination of Japanese tradition and contemporaneous toy-culture. Like one of the popular television heroes, Cubebot is transformed into a futuristic robot with only few hand grips. If it is time to rest, the Cubebot will become a perfect cube again.
Like a hero it poses, walks, dances, kneels or simply stands – the Cubebot can adopt numerous poses. Its joints and muscles are kept flexibly together by rubber bands. And like it should be, a real robot like Cubebot is nearby unbreakable: the wooden model is hard and robust and therefore resistant to nearly every shock.
Cubebot was made to survive generations of playful hands. But the charming robot is not only suitable to play with it: as an ornamental item Cubebot does also feel comfortable, on your desk or shelf.
Cubebot is suitable for children from 3 years up.
