2010 marks the year that technology goes 3D, but why stop at high-tech gear like TVs and cameras? A team at Vancouver UBC’s engineering lab has invented a cube with 3D images that respond to physical movements.

As you can see, the pCubee is almost like having a real miniature world inside it. Conventional 3D, such as films like Avatar, use stereoscopic images that necessitate wearing glasses. pCubee operates with optical trickery called “motion parallax” and fools the naked eye into perceiving 3-dimensional depth with its 5 LCD panels. The cube also incorporates a motion sensor, so that the onscreen images are interactive and can be manipulated by movement and a stylus. Eventually, the project has the potential to become a gaming platform.
