Buttons, dials and touch screens are the common means of interacting with physical products, but these means only allow user to touch the surface of a product. Clock Cubed is a product that betters the relationship between a user and product. By altering the form and orientation of the product users change settings, times and functions all without the use of traditional input methods.
3 months before the start of this project I discover Arduino micro-controllers, it was nothing short of a religious experience. My eyes had been opened to the world of products that could think and do all on their own. To say I used my few months of experience with micro-controllers and built this would be a complete lie. Kevin Baker was a life saver and can be credited with making it really work.
ClockCubed was a collaboration between Kevin Baker (Hardware), Dan Powell(Design), Xu Sun(Poster Design) and Myself(Concept, Prototyping, CAD,Design).
