What do you get when you take multi axis accelerometers, haptic vibration feedback, wireless connectivity, 4-channel audio and 54 multi-color LEDs and roll it into a handheld cube? A unique gaming experience unlike any other of course. What? You didn't know that?
ThinkGeek worked with our European friends Princip to produce this super cool gaming toy of the future. How does it work? Hard to explain but we'll try.
The Futuro Cube senses rotation and tapping on any side. It can vibrate, play audio and dynamically change it's LED colors across any face of the cube to provide feedback. A dozen built in games then take advantage of these controls. What's more, buy two cubes and they can interact together. Not enough? Wait for the software development kit coming out later this year and program your own applications.
Here are some of the tech tricks your Futuro Cube can do:
Early in 2013, Princip will release a software development kit so you can develop your own games and software for the Futuro. Built in are a dozen different games you can play out of the box
