Blue Telescope developed a series of tablet-based applications for Liberty Science Center’s travelling exhibition Beyond Rubik’s Cube.
15 Digital Information Stations provide multi-lingual interpretation throughout the exhibit, presenting historical context, artifact labels, and animated how-to illustrations. The HTML-based stations use a customized WordPress CMS, allowing exhibit developers to readily manage and edit text and visual content.
The Solve Bar Android app prompts visitors to photograph a scrambled Rubik’s Cube, then presents step-by-step solving instructions using algorithms of varying complexity. The solution is visualized and animated using a web-based 3D cube model developed by Google.
Lastly, Collaborative Mosaic guides visitors to help complete a 1200-cube pixelated artwork, and lets staff manage and customize the mosaic images.
