Cubie was born out of design constraints. Those constraints included that it had to be a 8 inch by 8 inch by 8 inch cube, completely self contained and interactive in some way. Michele Chang and I partnered up on this project and came up with Cubie. Cubie is an ice cube made of frosted plexi-glass. Cubie warms up to a glow based on proximity to him. But to make him glow a bright red, you need two participants to be near or else all you get is a faint glimmer. In some ways he is a rough relationship barometer. If you populate a room with Cubies you have an interesting way of mapping presence.
