Look Into the Future with Autodesk Labs: Tangible View Cube

How would you like to control the visualization of designs with a strong tactile sense? This video demonstrates a new prototype by Autodesk for a “Tangible View Cube“. The cube is a small wireless device with built-in accelerometers and magnetometers to allow absolute coordinates of the cube to be passed to an application. Brian Pene and Eddy Kuo connected Matt Jezyk and Lira Nikolovska’s tangible cube to Autodesk Design Review to correlate and control 3D navigation, similar to how the View Cube works in the software.
