See [www.molecubes.org]

These are open source modular robots. The cubes can be connected and can reconfigure based on their detected physiology. This can then be transferred to a computer simulation, evolved and then transferred back into the physical domain.


You can save a lot in the rapid prototyped parts by making them yourself, moreover there's the option to change a few things in a couple of iterations without breaking your piggy bank.

Here are the STL files:

Looks really great. I've seen modular cubes a while ago and was really wanting to get some that were open source or printable.

Hey that's a great idea!

But... That internal gear looks borderline achievable with a RepRap, or am I mistaken?

This is an awesome project!! I am adding it to my list of things to do after my RepRap is up and running!

Look at the date this was originally posted: almost 5 years ago. The video it refers to is almost 6 years old. It looks like that project is no longer on the website.
