Artist Javier Lloret created an interactive facade controlled by a handheld version of the puzzle.

Spanish artist and designer Javier Lloret has created an interactive facade that lets users play with a large-scale virtual Rubiks cube.

Puzzle Facade consists of a 3D-printed white Rubiks cube connected to a digital wall. The movements of the smaller handheld cube are projected onto the digital wall, which in this case is the exterior of the Ars Electronica building in Austria.

The 3D-printed Rubiks cube was built with a digital core connected via Bluetooth to a computer. The computer controls the projection on the building facade. As the player moves the Rubiks cube, the LED lights on the facade transform accordingly.
