Computer Cubes That Communicate With Each Other ..!!
I remember when we were children playing with blocks and re-built it again and again without getting bored .. Won’t it be interesting if we go back to play with them again but with a little different way?!!
This what the student David Merrill – student at the graduate studies at the Massachusetts Institute – when he convert the cubes to a computer surface to interact with them:
Merrill has invented Siftables computer cubes that replaces the traditional mouse to can interact with a computer in a sensual way!!All you need to do is to hold it in your hand, mixing, and rotate it just like you play with it, and each has its own monitor , radio receptor and it recognise the movements of each other cubes !!
it can do calculations and display videos and also communicate with its peers .. It is possible to paint by pouring the color from cube to another .. and mixing colors on central cube .. To ease the color re-pour it reversible manner..
Cubes are also used as a learning language tool , where it is possible to play with theformation of letters and the words are examined from the dictionary ..
There is possibility to applicate to animation tools to add tools and characters and make them interact together,that gives the child the field to create story of his imagination weave .. the music are operated whatever you want the rhythm to be .. for example, cubic represent drum and other take another tool and put them together to get out your own music .. you also can raise one’s voice, reduce and control of voice vibrations and control the length and the short duration of the music .. All of this done by add cubes and arrange them in various ways,lets see it in the following video:-
