Ars Electronica’s media facade transformed into a giant Rubik’s cube

On october 2013, the Ars Electronica media facade became a giant Rubik’s cube. The player interacts with the specially designed interface-cube. A real easy and playful way to interact with the city.

Puzzle Facade was part of Javier Lloret's thesis of the Interface Culture master program at university. The interface-cube holds several electronic components inside that allow for it keep track of its orientation and the rotations of each side of the cube. This data is sent over Bluetooth to a computer that runs the Puzzle Facade designed software. This software visualizes the cube on the large-scale Ars Electronica’s media facade according with the interaction of the player with the interface-cube.
