GoCube is a 3D speed-cube and incorporates digital aspects with the cube itself, being equipped with sensors that track and then measure the activity and position of the cube. additionally there is an app that allows the sensors to relay the information they gather while formulating a real-time display of the cube and the movements you make. the sensors communicate the measurements such as ‘turns per second, number of moves, time to completion, and more.’ the system is also capable of tracking and recording ‘the cube’s exact movements and history,’ that allows users ‘to monitor their performances, strengths and weaknesses’ as a way to identify a route to bettering their game. rubix-gocube-particul
