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.
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.
Andreas Markus Hoenigschmid is the master of solid geometry, the black magic wizard of three-dimensional space. Check out the dozens of objects he can create with his amazing transforming cubes.
Music videos are wonderful, but you can only watch one at a time. No longer—thanks to a weird, but rather fun, project from Google called The Cube, which lets you play and manipulate six at once.
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…
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?
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.
At the Swinburne University of Technology in Australia, a bunch of students just invented a machine called Ruby, which can solve a Rubik's Cube in 10.69 seconds—the fastest ever for a robot.
Running in the $2000 range, it might not be the most practical way to show far flung relatives your kid's birthday party, but for those in the business of live streaming, the Teradek Cube crams a lot of solution in a little package. The deck of cards-sized box is a miniature, battery-powered H264 encoder that sends…
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.
Olympic stadiums have a short shelf life. They're oohed and aahed at during the games, but after the festivities, they're forgotten and left to rust. China is trying to prevent that by re-inventing the beautiful Water Cube as a theme park.
Unless, of course, you happen to be the current world record holder, who can solve a cube in under 20 seconds. This Lego Mindstorms 'bot was built by ARM, and managed to solve the cube in 25 seconds flat.
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.
Before the rise of Napster and AutoTune, we had drugs and rock 'n' roll. Remember how great those were?
