Rubik’s Futuro Cube

A few weeks ago, I got an email from Scott Ramsey of Mind In Motion Games.  He introduced me to this cool new cube called Rubik’s Futuro Cube.  I did not know what it was so Scott shared with me the link to the website (http://www.futurocube.com).   I poked around the site to see what it was.  It turns out it is an interactive puzzle cube.

After a day or two, I received the cube in the mail and boy was I surprised as to what this thing can do.

The Futuro Cube is pretty cool,  It is an electronic cube and needs to be charged via USB charger.  It is however more than just a cube with lights.  The first time I plugged it in, it took a deep breath.  Really it did!  The cube has speakers so the interaction is both, visual and auditory.

Right out of the box it comes with 14 different games, including one that is pretty close to how you solve a regular 3×3 Rubik’s cube.  If you are into coding you can actually download a development kit that will allow you to program your own games.

Each of the games are scored depending on how far you go.  You can then upload your scores to with the online interface.  The cube can also interact with other cubes.  If a friend has a Futuro cube in close proximity, you can challenge each other via bluetooth.Game play ranges from simple to complex and has enough variability to give hours of fun.

But being a music guy, I specially liked the piano feature which I demonstrated and embelished in the video below 🙂
