Cubelets: Modular Robot Toy-Kit Cubelets is the name of the very first product of “Modular Robotics” – a spin-off from the famous “robot”-Carnegie Mellon University. It is a kit of free combinable, small robot modules.

Most of the tools gathered here are free or relatively inexpensive (exceptions: items that are expensive but can be used on a free trial basis). Also on this site are "paradigms"--books, essays, digital projects, etc.--that illustrate the kinds of humanities projects that these thinking tools/toys might help create. A star indicates tools that combine power (advanced, multiple, or flexible features) with ease of use.

Getting started - Who we are and what we can do for you There is a lot of information streaming through the social web. Tens of thousands of Tweets, Flickr photos, YouTube videos and the like are created every day. There's a lot of good out there, compelling photos and unique voices out there that could be relevant to whatever story you're trying to tell.
