Fentix Cube: Like Rubiks on Roids

by Paul Strauss

Interactive artist Andrew Fentem created this cool electronic cube puzzle game loaded with colorful LEDs. The Fentix Cube is controlled by touch as well as through movement.

Fentix Cube Interactive Plaything

While it’s designed as a platform, capable of playing a number of different games and puzzles, the interactive plaything happens to do a great job digitally emulating the old Rubik’s Cube.

The digital puzzle’s 216 mulit-colored LEDs are controlled by touch-sensitive panels and 3D motion accelerometer circuits (like the ones found in the Nintendo Wii).

Fentem says his Cube will be available in limited quanties from the UK’s Kinetica electronic art museum in the near future.
