Cubroid Wireless Coding Blocks

Teach your kids how to code in a creative and enjoyable way with the Cubroid Wireless Coding Blocks. Learning how to program is fun and easy to comprehend with these connective coding blocks. By simply building and connecting the blocks, kids can understand how to bring creations to life. Cubroid functions through wireless communication, making it possible to code in various combinations. Likewise, the set comes with sensor blocks and actuators that perform without external connections. Additionally, the list of creative innovations is endless thanks to its Lego compatibility. The blocks are safe and easy to assemble and do not have any connecting pins or visible lines. The control programming app allows your kids to control and prompt movement in their robot creations. Finally, Cubroid can connect to MIT’s Scratch programming platform to further advance programming skills.

Review from Kickstarter
Is anyone else having problems with the responsiveness of blocks? For example, pressing a button to trigger something in scratch code has a significant delay. The response I had via email from cubroid was "Since the cubroid communicates wirelessly, there is a slight delay when the sensor detects something. We will study to increase the poll rate." The "slight" delay is an understatement in my view and makes it very difficult to build anything interactive. Is there a workaround does anyone know? ​

Hi Cubroid team, I need basic help how to connect cubes to the iPhone 6s. All cubes are on, charged and on screen, I can see only SEARCH CUBROID and nothing is happening after that. Also, it looks like that Coding app us not optimized if you are using iPhone 6s in ZOOM mode.

Hi Cubroid-Team,
I already enjoy the cubroid kit and the connection to scratch is also working - great work! But at the moment there are no hints in the (englisch) documentation how to use/program the automatic operation mode, so it works at the moment in smartphone and scratch mode only, but not without smartphone/computer connection. Is it already possible to use it or will you provide additional tools for that? Best regards
Lars

@Dear Ivan Pechorin

1)Currently, Android, iPhone and iPad are all updated to the same version. Please check out the your iPad's cubroid app again. 2) The current coding app has a limited number of available modules. So, We are currently developing an application that offers users a high degree of freedom. We will be launching a new controlling application that will be available for iPads on about August 2018.
Please rooting for us! 3)Please email me if you would like to purchase more modules.
We will guide you how to purchase.
info@cubroid.com Thank you for your continued support for us.
We hope you enjoy the cubroid kit! Thanks :)

Hi Cubroid Team,
Started to play with Cubroid basic kit with my son, we love it!
Few comments and a question: 1) iPad Coding app seems to be outdated - doesn't support as many modes as Android one; so we have to use my phone instead of my son's iPad :) can you please bring the iPad app up to date? for instance, currently it's not possible to use 2 x motors + proximity sensor on iPad, but it's available on Android. 2) Basic kit includes 2x motors, promiximity sensor and LED block, so i think it would be reasonabl to expect the Coding app to support a mode where you have all four blocks together. Currently neither iPad, nor Android Coding app has such code. So we have to choose eiher 2x motors + proximity, or 2x motors + LED, but not all together. 3) As i understood, programming via Scratch is only possible with the master block. I checked indiegogo - the only option to get master block seems to be buying full premium kit. Same with the "pre-order" button on your web site - it just brings me to indiegogo. Is there any way to buy just master block, or master block + few other sensor blocks, or some other combination that has the master block, other then full Premium kit? Keep up the great job, we love what you are doing. Thanks
Ivan

Hi Cubroid Team, Hurray! I'v got my cubroid set today .... but I am pretty disappointed not be able to use the scratch mode, as all scratch blocks are in Korean. :((
Also there is no English instructions for scratch. What is you timeline to provide an English scratch version? Regards

@Vladimir Murin We sincerely apologize for not shipping out your orders within the promised schedule.
We are improving some problems related to Scratch program linkage.
Production is almost over and now we need to do firmware updates and quality assurance testing. I'll post a detailed schedule for the update soon.

@b4market: In case of Premium kit, there are '8 module blocks' need to be charged. Module blocks need to be charged with a USB cable, but you don't need to charge the shape blocks. The blocks communicate each other via built-in Bluetooth connection. Once you charge the blocks for 2 hours, you can use them freely for 6-8 hours. If blocks are left powered off, you can use them after two months.

@vivian : Cubroid is made of polycarbonate. It is harmless to the body. And is a material that has heat resistance and impact strength. So, it is safe for young kids.
@Jung-kwon Park : We met many kids who sick of coding material easily. Cubroid is designed to easy to use and have a fun. Control App, coding app, and in-depth coding program 'Scratch' will help kids learn coding step by step easily and fun way. Also, it is compatible with lego. Children will love it.
@hongcha : Thanks for the comment. We can say that Cubroid is a perfect coding toy. Kids can learn how to code while they are playing. It will give you and your kids a wonderful experience.

I'm glad coding is being brought to the attention of education. It was so distanced in the early stages of my education growing up that I was too intimidated to try it. This is an excellent idea to stimulate curiosity and discovery!
