The Cube
Acrylic, Bass Wood, Arduino.


Collaboration with Anke Stohlmann

The Cube is a media system consisting of a large cube speaker and a small cube that acts as a remote control. The media system accesses the owner's cloud-based music platform and specifically his or her playlists, such as on Pandora or Spotify. The owner then sets up the playlists via the smartphone app or computer to sync with the speaker cube. A playlist can be selected to play by changing the cube's orientation or 'rolling the die' to shuffle. For visual feedback, the illuminated colors of both the large and small cube match and change, with each playlist having a unique color related to the style of music featured in the playlist.
