In February I was on a ski trip with some friends and Barry began talking about building a giant Rubik’s Cube. This week, just 6 months later the Groovik’s Cube was assembled at Burningman and looks spectacular. It was event mentioned in Gizmodo.
The project involved 9 project leads, over 50 volunteers, and many hours of volunteer work. Bringing together skills from electronics, software, fabric, adhesives, and metal.
I was a lead on the electronics side focusing on production of surface mount circuits to regulate current to the hundreds of super bright LEDs. I did not attend Burningman to witness the cube in person ad our timeline did not allow us to do a fully assembly before. So, I have yet to see the whole cube operating. I bet it is quite a site!
