We describe the design and implementation of a modular and distributed robot that physically simulates functioning of a 2-symbols Turing machine. The robot is constructed with Cubelets (small autonomous robot-cubes used for teaching basic robotics and programming for kids) and Lego® bricks (thus the robot is called CULET). The Cubelets robotic blocks allow for a high level programming: instead of a traditional code, the robots are programmed by assembling various elementary blocks of robots together. We illustrate how read and write operations are physically implemented by the CULET.
