Five ways to use your L3D Cube
Plug it in, no setup! A standard set of visualizations will automatically start playing when you first plug in your cube. *NEW: you can control the visualizations by tilting your cube, thanks to the included accelerometer!
Download new applications from CubeTube wirelessly to your cube with the click of a button.
Write your own programs for the Cube in Arduino language or Processing. The programs can be stored in the cube's memory or can be streamed to your cube from a computer over your WiFi network. Here's the definitive guide to programming in 3D in a cube.
Connect together multiple cubes and make them interact.
Hack it! Add your own sensors for new interactions or make improvements to your cube itself. Everything (hardware+software) is open-source and fully documented so hacking is fun!
