Mechanical Cube Harmonic

Last updated: 1/31/2019


This project deals with a musical rendition of the Rubik’s cube, called ‘CubeHarmonic,’ thought by Maria Mannone in 2013, and described in the book “Cool Math for Hot Music,” published by Springer. In 2016, she made a first prototype, with sound modules—as the ones used in greetings cards—applied on each facet of an extra-large sized Rubik’s cube. By using smaller sound modules, we can be able to make a Cubeharmonic out of a normal-size Rubik’s cube. This project aims to build smaller audio modules. For details, you can check out the video explanation.
