The Bar Graph Cubelet displays the block's value as a light-up bar graph. The value is normalized to the number of points on the bar graph so that a maximum value results in a fully-lit bar graph. The rechargable battery cubelet Cubelet provides the energy needed to make your robots spin, drive and squawk. The new Battery packs 30% more power than the previous generation and easily recharges via micro USB. The Blocker Cubelet is a basic building block that blocks data from its neighbors. It still passes power, but effectively stops communication and can insulate one side of a robot from another. The Bluetooth Cubelet contains a tiny Bluetooth radio that you can pair with your phone, tablet or PC. It also provides a gateway to stay up-to-date with Cubelets technology. The Bluetooth Cubelet is compatible with iOS and Android devices! The Brightness Cubelet has an analog photocell that responds to varying light conditions. Expect values near zero in a dark room, and values near one when the sensor is in front of a bright light.

The Distance Cubelet detects how far it is from an object. It uses infrared light and is accurate between 10 and 80 cm. The sensor is directional, so it outputs the distance to the object in front of the sensor. At 10 cm, the block will output values near 1, and toward 80 cm it will output values near 0. The Drive Cubelet only moves in one direction, slowing to a stop with a value of zero and moving faster with higher input values. The Flashlight Cubelet emits a focused beam of light from a powerful white LED. Off with a value of 0, the light becomes brighter with higher input values. The Inverse Cubelet calculates a value that is the opposite of the values it receives. Specifically, the Inverse Cubelet will (weighted) average its inputs and then output a value of one minus that average. The Knob Cubelet has a potentiometer embedded in one of its faces. It outputs a 0 when turned fully counterclockwise, and a 1 when turned clockwise. The Maximum Cubelet accepts many different inputs but only passes along the one with the greatest value. With a maximum block, you could easily build a robot that performs an action only when a sensor reads a value over a certain threshold.

The Minimum Cubelet can accept any amount of data but only outputs the smallest value that it receives. It can be handy for creating an on-off switch for a robot and also for using with a Distance Cubelet to build robots that avoid falling off the edge of a table. The Passive Cubelet is a basic building block. It carries power and data from its neighbors, but it basically acts like a smart brick. It doesn't move, sense, or change the data in any way. The rotate cubelet possesses one face that spins at a rate corresponding to the block's input values. The speaker cubelet chirps according to the block's data value. Contains a small speaker and an amplifier. The Temperature Cubelet contains a tiny thermometer (actually, a thermistor) that detects temperature. It's calibrated to output a 0 in freezing conditions and 255 in hot, sunny conditions of about 35 °C. The Threshold is a THINK Cubelet with a knob to alter the behavior of your robots. It will output a value of zero until its inputs exceed the threshold set by the knob. Above this threshold data will flow normally. Use this Cubelet to create robots that react suddenly, gate data flow, or exhibit binary behavior. The brick adapters can be used to connect CUBELETS and LEGO® bricks.
