Areaware Cubebot Robot
Cubebot is the ingenious wooden robot with moveable head and limbs that can take hundreds of poses according to mood. He (?)'s a terrific looker, but is also a marvellous tool for spatial awareness and problem solving. Like a Rubik's Cube but with personality.
Cubebot starts as a deceptive looking wooden block, but can quickly do head stands, press-ups, or just sit around – thanks to adaptable beechwood pieces and elasticised ligaments. He'll then fold back into a wooden block again (after a bit of patience and ingenuity). *
Areaware is a New York company. Designer David Weeks is a celebrated lighting designer and Adjunct Professor at the Parsons School of Design. Weeks created the first Cubebots for his own children using the lathe in his Manhattan studio.
Cubebot is a development of the Japanese traditional interlocking wooden Kumiki puzzles. David Weeks won a 2009 Chicago Athanaeum Design Award for his first venture into this world of dexterity, wit and wood.
