Final Project

  • Week 16

What does it do?

You can see the centers turning and music playing below
You can see the centers turning for a a full rubik's cube

moves will appear here

    What are the implications

    The motivation is to use group theory to map rubik’s cube movements to changes in musical notes so that the harmonies change based on user’s action on the cube and the user can “play by the ear”.
    Here's a video of the concept:

    But in the short term, I'll use it for my music and memory experiments. I'll give users a set of Rubik's cubes moves to memorize in 3 different ways and evaluate if music and muscle memorize can help people better memorize/recall things:
  • Using just a plain list
  • Using the web interface that place music when you type each turn (using just music for memory)
  • Uing the physical Rubik's cube that plays music (so music + muscle memory to memorize the turns)
