For this project we will be making an LED Rubik's Cube. Each sticker on the outside of the Rubix's Cube will be replaced by an LED to signal the color.
1. Get multicolor LEDs to represent the sides of the Cube.
2. Implement a reset such that the LEDs will revert to a solved Rubix's Cube state.
3. Implementation of six rotation sensors to check for rotations of the Cube
4. Determine an algorithm that can coach the user to solve the LED Rubix's Cube, then implement algorithm in our Cube.
This project should be considered for Senior Design because it is multi-faceted combining design circuitry and a complex puzzle algorithm. There are similar products on the market, however they are touch screen and the cube cannot be manually rotated. The other Cubes also do not implement a solving algorithm.
