Micro Cubebot® is the small brother of the popular Cubebot robot by Areaware.
Inspired by Japanese Shinto Kumi-ki puzzles, the designer David Weeks designed his Cubebot from wood. Cubebot is a combination of Japanese tradition and contemporary toy culture. Like one of the famous heroes from film and TV, Cubebot transforms into a futuristic robot in a few moments. If it’s time to relax, Cubebot forms a perfect cube.
Posing heroically, running, dancing, kneeling or just standing - even the small Cubebot can assume many poses. The joints and muscles are held together flexibly with rubber bands. And as a good robot should be, the Cubebot is almost unbreakable: the wooden model is hard and stable, and thus well-equipped for every blow and fall.
The Cubebot is made to withstand generations of playing hands. But the charming robot isn’t only suitable for play: Cubebot also feels comfortable as a decorative object on the desk or on shelves.
