In the 21st century, everything takes on a digital copy or continuation, which has recently touched the classic puzzle of the last century - the Rubik's cube. The brainchild of a Hungarian architect has turned into a startup GoCube, which transfers all actions with a cube from the real world to the digital space. Conversely, providing feedback and access to different services.
GoCube is designed and works just like a regular Rubik's cube, but here each face has its own set of sensors, plus an inertial measuring unit and other sensors. All in order to know exactly at what point in time all parts of the cube are in what position. The difference between the GoCube and GoCube Edge models is that the second calculates all indicators with an accuracy of thousandths - this is already a toy for professionals.
GoCube will show beginners with the help of lighting how to solve basic problems, introduce them to the principles of games. Advanced users can upload their results to the Internet, download sketches, compete in various mathematical and design games, for example, who can build a random pattern set by the generator faster in reality. Communication with the outside world is maintained via a smartphone and, in theory, the list of entertainment with GoCube is almost endless.
The base GoCube model costs $ 59, the advanced GoCube Edge - $ 79, but it also opens up access to an online league and competition between the strongest players. Sales are scheduled to start next March.
