A new photo from the Powerhouse Museum every day
I’m excited about my first blog post. As the museum’s industrial designer I have been realising John Hirsch’s dream of a 1m³ interactive Rubik’s Cube replica for the upcoming 80’s exhibition. He’s our Interactives Department Electronics Engineer, something of a McGyver.
It’s a touch sensitive cube with colours you could drag across the surface, all made possible by new sensing technology we developed and coloured light projected by LED’s from behind plastic sheets.
I started with CAD concepts of a metal light box of laser cut parts welded with the precision necessary to fit the many layers of parts still to come.
