roBlocks for Museum Exhibit Design

roBlocks are a cool toy system described as "Legos with computers inside" by some of their creators at Carnegie Mellon University.

The roBlocks website outlines features and how the 'Blocks will be programmed.

While not yet available commercially (the roBlocks team is aiming for a December 2008 public launch --- just in time for holiday shopping!) roBlocks look to be a great potential addition to museum programming as well as exhibit prototyping. In that regard, the roBlocks team is soliciting suggestions for additional types of blocks so why not head over to their website!

Are you watching some interesting technology on the horizon? Let us know about it in the Comments Section below.
