Puzzle Facade brings the experience of solving a Rubik’s cube to the urban space. It transforms the Ars Electronica’s media facade (Linz, Austria), into a giant Rubik’s cube.
In Puzzle Facade the player interacts with the specially designed interface-cube. The interface-cube doesn’t have color stickers and it holds several electronic components (an Arduino Pro Mini, an IMU, a LIPO battery, rotary encoders..) on its inside that allow to keep track of its orientation and rotations. 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.
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
