It's "Smart Cube" 


The Rubik's Cube is sometimes used in a variety of ways.


It's been 40 years since the cube came into the world and it's true that almost everyone knows or has tried it more than once.

According to the survey, about 98% people of the world knew about the cube.



How about you?  Here's my case.  

Cube was too difficult to learn!! Do you buy that?


But now, it is no longer so. 


The mobile apps will be available together via Apple app store and Google Play by the end of the year!

You can enjoy various contents such like missions, timer and games through a mobile app that works with JUNECUBE.  


However, you need to know about this.

In fact, JUNECUBE does not necessarily require a mobile app.


Because the processor of JUNECUBE has an intelligent solution algorithm.  So JUNECUBE can tell you the solution on its own without having to sync with the app

This is a big difference from other Smart Cubes.


Light emitting from JUNECUBE can make it easier for the user to solve the cube. This is very direct and most effective.

So we can call JUNECUBE as the "Smart Cube" or the "Easiest Cube"

PLUS

JUNECUBE is also a Smart Mood light, so it can be awesome interior item in your place.

The brightness of the mood light can be controlled by the mobile app. 


Remember light-emitting sequence and rotate the layers of the cube just like that!

One day in the spring of 2018, my son, June, came up to me and said,
     "I watched YouTube videos and read books to solve the Rubik's Cube, but it's still too hard."
     "How nice would it be to have light coming out of the cube and giving directions?"
     I shouted, "That's a good idea."
 

This was the beginning of the development of JUNECUBE

So I started searching for prior patents and papers all over the world.  And I was able to collect and analyze the patents related to the cube. 


  • PCB

When developing the PCB, we have disassembled the cube which is commonly sold in the market and applied the PCB prototype into the cube. 


  • Working prototype

It was very hard to make the size of a cube like an existing Rubik's cube.
     However, if the size of the cube is bigger than the existing cube due to electronic components, users will feel uncomfortable.

We've been trying to make sure that all electronic components are integrated into the core of a limited-sized cube. 

So after repeated 3D printing and revised the drawings, we were finally able to make the current cube product.  JUNECUBE is about the almost same size as the existing cube. 


We don't want children to give up the challenge after all because the cube is so difficult.

We want every child to master the cube and enjoy the challenge. 

JUNECUBE can do so.
 

And ultimately, we believe that children will have an ability to solve the any cube quickly without any JUNECUBE's instruction. 

JUNECUBE's role is just in there.

  •  J. CHOI: Product planning and hardware developers. He was in charge of hardware development and is currently building a mass production system. 
  •  I.H.KIM: Circuit design and development engineer. He has developed PCBs and sensors and is currently working on product certification. 
  •  Y.J.BHAN :  Mechanical design engineer.  He designed and manufactured a prototype. He is complementing the product design for mass production. 
  •  J.W. BAEK:  Product designer.  He was responsible for the design of JUNECUBE. And it is currently  improving design of mass-production products.

and my son, June, is a co-inventor of JUNECUBE.


Thankfully, our project has been supported by many organizations in the South Korea.





June Cube, as an instructive play material, will be the next and better than Fidget Spinners.

Perfect and memorable gift for Christmas for your kids.

Risks and challenges

1. All the built-in parts will be commercial products. However, some of parts can be changed during mass-production phase to produce better products, which could lead to an increase in overall production cost.
Nevertheless, this Kickstarter campaign is the for first time to introduce JUNECUBE, so we will not charge the backers any additional costs.

2. We will do our best for delivery. However, there will be a little delay to some countries and regions.

3. If the product breaks down during shipment, we will ship it back to the new product in the earliest possible time.

4. We're a small startup. A few employees are always working busy. Therefore, the respond to the inquiry may be delayed. However, we strongly promise that we will do our best.
