This Japan-only goodie is a desktop speaker system that flashes its cube-ness to the beat of your sound source.

Sounds rather gimicky, useless, and I bet annoying after a day or two. What gets me interested in this gadget is the potential for futuristic Rubik's cube action. Now that chinese kids can solve the original Cube in like 11 seconds, don't you think it would be sweet to reinvent the game where the colored squares change every 30 seconds? Me neither. I'm terrible at these things. You?
