In this talk I discuss the topological Kondo effect realized in Majorana box devices. With normal leads, it represents a stable isotropic multi-channel Kondo fixed point that can be probed by linear conductance measurements. With superconducting leads, we predict a 6pi periodicity of the Josephson current, corresponding to fractionalized charge transfer.
