So How Does That Logitech Cube Mouse Work Anyway?

That Logitech Cube mouse we saw last week was weird. Aside from the fact that it isn’t actually a cube, there were questions about how the thing would actually work. Logitech has tried to answer those questions with this product video.

Sit On A Pile Of Trash

This “Trash Cube”, designed by Nicolas Le Moigne, uses leftover roofing material to make up its shape. When workers throw scrap fibre cement away, they toss it into a cube-shaped mold to form the seat. Recycling is useful.

Shrinking A Rubik's Cube Only Makes It Harder To Solve

The cube is fully functional too, so for fat fingered dummies like me, it’s that much more impossible to solve. Thanks.

Cubic Timer Counts Down With The Roll Of The Die

This cubic timer is pretty cute, but given its fun design quirk (it counts down from whatever number is on top), it’s limited to only four different lengths of time. This is why timers don’t usually look like dice.

MintPass Cube MP3 Player Remembers That Analog Rocks

Before the rise of Napster and AutoTune, we had drugs and rock ‘n’ roll. Remember how great those were?

Apple's Simplistic IPod Marketing Trumped By Blatant Sexuality

It's Just Kinda Neat: Interactive Colour Cube

The Interactive Colour Cube doesn’t do anything per se, other than change colour based upon its angle of rotation. Three accelerometers each control a different axis (X, Y, and Z) which directly correlate with either a red, blue or green set of internal LEDs (that “float” in a cube within the cube). The result is a logical, dynamic light show as you rotate the device. Here’s a clip:

Neocube Is Better Than the Rubik's Cube Because There's No Right Answer

Rubik’s Cubes are nice if you actually want to think, but how about for those times when you’re just sitting there and you want something to fiddle with? The Neocube has 216 spherical neodymium magnets that connect and make a cube, a sphere, or any other obscene shape that springs to mind. Show me a man who doesn’t like playing with magnets and I’ll show you a man I don’t much care for. All yours for just US$34.95. Bonus video after the jump.

Seekway 3D LED Cube Amazes in Glorious Colour Phasing Fashion

Seekway has put together this spectacular 3D LED display, which is capable of displaying images in full 3D (duh) at an amazing, 30 fps. The prototype consists of a 16 x 16 x 16 grid of interconnected colour LEDs and if our mathematics doesn’t fail us, that’s 4096 individual diodes. We’re sure you’ll agree; it looks amazing, but the video is even more fantastic, so jump in.
