All of the teaching and programming of Nübi is done through a magic flower, special Nübicards, and Nübi itself. There are no screens or other electronics involved.

There are 4 types of Nübicards; Program Nübicards, Sense Nübicards, Action Nübicards, and Game Nübicards.

Starting with basic color mixing and sounds, kids will eventually learn to custom-program Nübi to react to light, dark, hot, cold, motion, and even other Nübis.
