When you think of robots, you don’t exactly think of wood or cubes. But the Cubebot is actually a fusion of these three elements because, well, it’s made of wood, it’s formed from cubes, and it’s a robot at the same time.
The Cubebot is actually more than just for show; depending on your mood, you can move around its arms, legs, or make it face one way or another to depict different poses. And when you’re done, you can just fold it right up into a cube.
Inspired by the Japanese Shinto Kumi-ki puzzles (no, us neither), Cubebot is a non-traditional take on the toy robot and makes a brilliantly quirky desktop plaything. Cubebot’s powerful hardwood frame can hold countless poses, and hiselastic-band muscles and durable limbs make him super sturdy. When it’s time for him to rest, just fold him back into a perfect cube.
Intriguing and eye catching, Cubebot is ready to strike a pose whenever your workload/stress levels threaten to tip you over the edge. Irate? Hands on hips. Won a contract? Arms aloft. Tired? Sit down. Been caught fiddling your expenses? Make like a cube and hide in the drawer!
The small version of the Cubebot is available from Firebox for £22.99 ($37), while the medium version is £31.99 ($51).
