Looking for a new spin on the original Rubik’s Cube? GoCube has teamed up with the company to jointly release the official Rubik’s Connected Cube.
Using the same digital platform as the GoCube, the Rubik’s Connected Cube can be solved in as little as an hour using a fun and interactive way. The device was initially launched at the Red Bull Rubik’s Cube 2020 World Cup, allowing event organizers to stage tournaments remotely during the pandemic.
The 21st Century reimagining of the classic puzzle allows players to compete with other “cubers” from around the world. It has sensors to track and measure activity, even when it’s disconnected. An inertial measurement unit tracks the cube’s position as well.
Rubik’s Connected is also a speed cube, with implemented mechanisms that enable it to be fast and smooth. It consumes low power via its rechargeable battery and connects through Bluetooth 5.0 to the GoCube app. The app provides a real-time display of the cube, analyzes movement, and enables fun interactive tutorials so anyone can learn and enjoy cubing. Various pre-packaged games and options are available to play with friends in person and online.
Rubik’s Connected comes with the cube itself and a USB charger for US$59.95.
