The modern era of digital technology has given rise to a new concept of living, which is known as ‘The smart life.’ Take a minute out from your busy life and think about how life has changed immensely in the past few years, look around yourself, you are surrounded by all smart things. There is a smart laptop, smart TV and the most prized possession of all, the inevitable, Smartphone. Now, it would be no surprise if there is yet another smart device that is smarter than all these devices put together and actually give you the flexibility to control them all with a single device. Yes, that is exactly what the ‘CUBE’ promises to be.
No brownie point for guessing that the device being talked about appears like a Cube. This innocuous little box takes smart devices to another level altogether and become a mother of all devices. The Cube is supposedly a device that aims to be the master controller of all your home devices. If you are a sci-fi fan, you would be amazed to know that those fancy things you see and read about in the books and movies can actually become a reality and this CUBE is just one such fine example.

As on date, the CUBE is just a concept that is created by a German studio, which is known as the Family of the Arts and it is marketed to the potential manufacturers as being an intuitive device that makes controlling your smart phone easier than ever before. The creators of this amazing new concept are focused on one thing that is to keep the usability of the device so simple that even the grannies and the grandpas would be able to use it without any hassles.
The CUBE, which may appear like a normal dice that you use to play board games, looks blank on all its sides. When you tap the device to turn it on, every side of the cube reveals a certain function with a backlit icon. You can flip the Cube anyway you want so that the function that you intended to use sits face-up.

The best thing about this device is that you can custom program it so that only the smart gadgets that are around the Cube can be controlled easily without even touching it. For instance, you can turn or twist the cube in the clock wise direction, you can turn the sound, lightning and run the temperature of your devices up. On the flip side, if you rotate the Cube in the anti-clock direction it will turn down the sound or reduce the temperature. You can custom program the device so that you can use it as a toggle switch for your home by just using different gestures.
The creators of CUBE are hunting for manufacturers who could make this dream device a reality and bring it to the market for public use. Whether it becomes a reality or not, only time will tell. Anyway, the concept has itself given us a sneak peek into what future holds for us.
