Smart home devices are seeping into our lives. But as the number of remotely adjustable aspects of home life grows, keeping track of all the apps that control everything could become a bit of headache—a fact which doesn’t really jive with the smart home philosophy of being as lazy as possible.
Lionsgate’s rebooting Vincenzo Natali’s 1997 science fiction horrow movie Cube. Why? Because why not, I guess.
The Polaroid Cube is a delightful little camera that takes still shots and video. Like the name suggests, it's a tiny cube just 35mm on a side. It sticks to any and all magnetic surfaces—even your dinner fork. It can be tossed around and taken out on the town and record all of life's oh-so-precious moments. But so…
The deadly magnetic metal spheres known as Buckyballs may be officially banned, but they keep living in the homes and offices of rebels who keep making cool stuff with them. Like this massive cube assembled with 10,000 magnetic spheres—without a doubt the most satisfying video so far this month.

Fitting quality audio components into slim laptops and tiny smartphones takes nothing short of a herculean effort, and as a result, is something often overlooked by hardware manufacturers. Realizing this, NuForce has spent the last year developing a line of products meant to enhance the tech we use daily, geared…
This is the Cubed Maze³ by designer Phil Pauley. Ensconced within its clear laminated polymer walls are nine floors of dead ends, staircases, and psychological torment for those willing to broach its premises.
With Star Wars Episode I hitting theaters all over again, there's been a whole new wave of interest in George Lucas' biggest letdown. And we've been remembering some of the other prequels that have tried to fill in backstory over the years.
Is this a power pack? Nah. A pico projector? Nope. Is it a cube? It claims to be, but it looks more like a rectangular prism to me. Will it really redefine an entire category? Looks aside, we're not so sure about that, but Logitech sure thinks it will.. So what is this thing?
People have been trying to make a movie of William Gibson's Neuromancer since the mid-1980s, and now Splice/Cube director Vincenzo Natali is trying to make it happen. But for a few years, Joseph Kahn, the director of tons of music videos plus Torque and Detention, was hard at work on a Neuromancer film.
It goes by many names: the hypercube, the 8-cell, or the octochoron. It is represented by many shapes; a small cube inside a larger cube, two cubes connected by a bridge, a cube with slightly skewed angles. All the tesseract's names and shapes are attempts to visualize what we can never understand. What does the…
A white Rubik's cube? Square snow flakes? Some sort of stress ball? Not quite. The answer is a spoilerishly interesting theory for the upcoming movie Super 8.

This "Trash Cube", designed by Nicolas Le Moigne, uses leftover roofing material to make up its shape. When workers throw scrap fiber cement away, they toss it into a cube-shaped mold to form the seat. Recycling is useful.
Somebody got the bright idea to shrink a Rubik's cube down to 10mm—that's less than half an inch. The cube is fully functional too, so for fat fingered dummies like me, it's that much more impossible to solve. Thanks.
