The vision of the Fable modular robotic system is to transform the development of robots from a process performed mainly by experts, to an easily accessible and motivating activity that enables a large range of users to assemble and animate their own robotic ideas. To achieve this vision, the Fable system consists of a range of modules equipped with sensors and actuators, which users can easily assemble into a wide range of robots within seconds. The robots are user- programmable on several levels of abstraction ranging from a simple visual programming language to powerful conventional ones. This paper provides a brief overview of the concept, design and state of development for the second version of the Fable modular robotic system.
