Modular prototyping cubes for rotation prototyping / making.
Modular + Rotation
This idea explores the possibility of combining modularity and rotation as a expressive prototyping medium for engineering, design, art and entertainment.
Inspirations: Voxel, magnetic ball toy, Minecraft, Lego.
The user can connect different modules together to form shapes that can rotate. A combination of different rotation can generate various outcomes.
Whatever the user makes, the modules can talk to each other and generate a representation of the design on a computer for the user to add different features/ program
Application 1: Prototyping mechanisms
The modules can simulate mechanical feedbacks such as springs.
Led module can be attached and program to light up when the lid is open.
Application 2: Prototyping computer interactions
Modules can simulate pulling force from fishing.
Application 3: Prototyping Physical interactions for multiplayer games
