Plenty of us have played with a Rubik’s Cube, but have you ever tried to solve the puzzle on the sides of an office building? For an awesome project entitled Puzzle Facade, Spanish designer Javier Lloret used a specially designed interface-cube to transform the Ars Electronica Futurelab in Linz, Austria into a giant Rubik’s Cube and then invited passersby to play. Here’s how it works:
The interface-cube holds electronic components to keep track of rotation and orientation. This data is sent via Bluetooth to a computer that runs the Puzzle Facade designed software. This software changes the lights and color of the large-scale Ars Electronica’s media facade in correlation to the handheld interface-cube.
Due to the nature of this building and its surroundings, the player is only able to see two sides at the same time. This factor increases the difficulty of solving the puzzle, but as the player is able to rotate and flip the interface-cube, it is not a blocking factor.
TL;DR: Building-sized playable Rubik’s Cube = Awesome
