Application Deadline: July 31st 2019

Eric Schweikardt

CEO & Design Director of Modular Robotics

I run a toy robot company called Modular Robotics. We make Cubelets, a robotic construction kit and are developing a few other products too.

In 2008-2009 I was a Visiting Scientist at the Cornell Computational Synthesis Lab in Ithaca, New York. In 2008, I finished my PhD from the Computational Design Laboratory at Carnegie Mellon University where I worked on roBlocks and the Erstwhile Agent, an evolutionary design program for modular robotic constructions.

Cubelets were recently featured in Ars Technica, the Make blog, and in Wired. They’re currently being shown at the Museum of Modern Art’s Talktome exhibit.
