Bloxels. Bloxels bloxels BLOXELS. If you say the word, you can kind of understand where designer Jinha Lee got his inspiration from for this special-looking display prototype which adapts depending on which blocks you stack next to one another.

The University of Tokyo student's creation uses clear cubes which glow brightly when stacked next to another cube, with the color changing dependent on the transmitted data. The Bloxels won't change the landscape of science or anything, but it sure does look like fun to play with. [Jinha Lee via DesignBoom]

I'm reading it as Block Cells, which makes me think that it is some sort of cancer treatment.

My friend, however, read it as Block Souls, which makes me think that each of these blocks has a trapped soul inside. Hey, whatever the cost of curing cancer is, it's probably worth it.
