You can use Cubelets without any computers or tablets or Apps.
Cubelets have microcontrollers inside them. Occasionally, a new operating system (OS) is released for the controller. You have the option of upgrading the cubes to the new operating system.
The NEW Cubelets app is designed to work with Cubelets OS 4. Use it to upgrade your Cubelets to OS 4. Once you’re running OS 4 you can use the app to create remote control robots and read sensor data values. So you can communicate both ways with your Cubelets: read and write.
Modular Robotics has released a new operating system for Cubelets called OS 4. It changes the way Cubelets communicate with each other and with connected devices. Cubelets OS 4 enables Cubelets to do everything they do now, only better! Cubelet OS 4 is FREE. All you need to do is upgrade with a Bluetooth Cubelet using the new Cubelets app.
OS 4 Cubelets run a faster and more efficient operating system that isn’t compatible with earlier Cubelets operating systems. If you have a mixed collection of OS 4 and non-OS 4 Cubelets, you can tell the difference between the two by comparing the flashing LEDs on each Cubelet. OS 4 Cubelets flash their LEDs more frequently.
With the Bluetooth Cubelet, add remote control or reprogram your cubes. Add to any Cubelets kit to extend your robot.
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! This Cubelet is pre-loaded with the newest Cubelets operating system, Cubelets OS 4.
