Tetris-Bot is a Tetris-playing Lego robot by Branislav Kisacanin and made Tetris -Bot in order to engage his kids in a fun and educational project.
Tetris-Bot consists of a camera, a TI DM6437 DSP board (running my embedded vision and artificial intelligence algorithms), and a three-finger LEGO Mindstorms NXT robotic hand (that presses the keys on the computer keyboard).
The Android App running on the Droid mobile phone uses the phones camera to take pictures of each face of the cube and sends the solution to the LEGO NXT controller via Bluetooth and is able to solve Rubik’s Cube in just 24 seconds. [via [Read More...]
Pixelated wonderland indeed! After their propagation of their 3-D world on 2-D mediums, eBoy (no affiliation with eBay) finally found the ideal canvas – Apple iPhone. Worked in conjunction with app designer Delicious Toys, the eBoy FixPix is not just a simple App Game.
With gentlest tilt, players put back together a intricate 3-D puzzle. Complexity increase as more 3 dimensional layers juxtaposed on one another. Think of it as a contemporary Rubik’s Cube, where dexterity and visual perception really comes into play.
Soon to be available in the iTune App Store. [via FreshnessMag]. Happy Puzzling!
Void Cube is a 3D mechanical puzzle similar to a Rubik’s Cube, with the notable difference being that the center cubes are missing. The three central axes used on the Rubik’s Cube are also absent, creating holes straight through the cube on all three axes. Due to the restricted volume of the puzzle it employs an entirely different structural mechanism from a regular Rubik’s Cube. Happy Puzzling!

Colors embossed include green, blue, red, yellow, white & pink. One of the more sensible concepts in a long time that hopefully will delight the sighted folks too. Happy Puzzling!
