Reincarnation of Rubik’s Cube as 3D-printed version with PSoC CapSense and WS2812B illumination.

Most of you might have been still babies when Rubik’s Cube was an amazing more than just a toy in the 1980s, and it’s still popular, so for sure you might have seen the mechanical cube already somewhere. But now it’s time to make a digital version of it! Touch and Light!

Infineon + Cypress have great small microcontrollers, PSoC4, that allows each pin to be configured as touch input. Their CapSense(r) is really easy to use and allows a self-calibration or auto-tuning. So I did first some experiments to find the right way for designing transparent 3D-components that enables to implement a touch-electrode.”
