Anyone remember that toy? I loved it as a kid though I could never solve it. Years down the road, I randomly get the urge to buy one at 3am so I go to the beloved Walmart and buy one. Needless to say I spent the whole night trying to figure it out and 8 hours later it was solved. I became hooked. So Now I "need" a new computer and I'm leaning towards an HTPC. I get this idea to make a Rubik's Cube case out of colored acrylic and that brings me to right now. I'm in the planning stages and as far as my searches have shown me, I see nothing like it. (I was looking for ideas to steal.) A few minutes in sketchup have given me this. It's very rough but I need criticism. Tips/tricks/shortcuts are always accepted. A few pics. I'm looking for a local acrylic supplier as the shipping rates are painful to look at. This specific render is a 9"x 9" cube and an ITX mobo is shown. I'm playing with the idea of a micro atx but don't really want that 12" cube. As soon as I get some more planning under my belt, I'll probably knock out a cardboard model to see how tight I can cram things in there. Ideally, (and probably not feasibly), I'd like to engineer a way for the top one or two layers to swivel/pivot horizontally like a rubik's cube does. If anybody knows of a link or a project that is similar, please link it. I haven't seen anything similar. I look forward to input.
