About Works of NeuroCube
NewroCube was developed by a venture software developer based in Kobe System Watt.
NeuroCube is a robotic system that allows dynamic and flexible configuration by users.
Elements such as sensors, wheels or a motor are available as units that can be combined easily.
Robots with a variety of functions can be built using NeuroCube.
It can be used for creating a piece of media art. Here are some examples.

NeuroCube includes customized version of Automated Composing System.
Virtual Plant (Visual Basic)

As a visitor's hand approaches, an ultrasonic sensor measures the distance
and the plant grows while the sound also changes. Both the plant and music
are based on fractal algorithm.
