We all know the famous Rubik’s Cube, this six-sided, six-colored object that has fascinated entire generations and occupied us for many hours to bring all colored faces together. A puzzle that will celebrate its 47th anniversary in 2021.
And exactly in 2021 the “Tech” version of the Rubik’s Cube will also come onto the market. Your name The WOWCube. An object weighing 335 grams, 7 centimeters high, with 24 screens, 8 hours of autonomy and 13 games. A real new video game console.
What is the WOWCube?
The WOWCube is an object that resembles a simple cube. However, this cube has 24 screens. And when the 24 mini-screens are activated, you will discover a new and incredible experience with a smart and educational device. The 24 high-resolution mini displays are connected to eight independent modules. It is therefore possible to manipulate the cube like a real Rubik’s cube by turning its faces, making spins and much more.
Each module of the WOWCube is autonomous thanks to its revolutionary new operating system and a CPU that is discreetly integrated into each module of the interconnected cubes in order to exchange data.
The WOWCube is therefore an innovative networked object that enables children to play and educate in a playful way. You can connect the cube to your smartphone via Bluetooth or place it near your PC. When not in use, it can be placed at its charging station, where it becomes an intelligent night light or a digital weather station, among other things. The 24 screens can thus be used independently of each other so that you can display all the information you need, e.g. B. Exchange rates, weather in Los Angeles or time in London.
It can also be a decorative object and offer various educational programs for children. The WOWCube contains five pre-installed games and ten more games are available in the WOWCube Playstore.
How did the WOWCube project come about?
The WOWCube, which won the Audience Award at CES Las Vegas last year, is finally arriving in its final version and will announce its price, release date and pre-order date at CES Las Vegas 2021 from 11 a.m. to 11 a.m. January 2021.
The concept of the WOWCube was invented in 2016 by Savva Osipov in Novato, California. The young American was 12 years old at the time. For many months, Savva and his father will put up many sketches and other patents in order to propose a first prototype in spring 2017. In June of the same year, the prototype was presented at the University of Berkley in Los Angeles.
The cube will be officially unveiled at a first meeting in May 2018 during the Maker Faire in Santa Clara, California. In March 2019, the company signed a partnership with Shenzhen to manufacture the WOWCube. In the course of 2020, the Cube will receive several awards and the first final test versions will be produced.
