Braille Cube: A Rubik’s Cube For The Visually Impaired


Solving the rubik’s cube – world’s favorite puzzle toy – is an immersive experience. It requires you to keep your eyes open, your fingers aware and your mind on-the-go. A very few people are known to have solved the cube with their eyes closed. But this requires you to have a sneak-peak at the cube before you start your magic and solve it and even out all the phases with a color. Have you, though, ever wondered how those who can’t see can enjoy this puzzle? An astounding innovation by Konstantin Datz, the Braille Cube, is a rubik’s cube for visually impaired and low-vision friends among us.

Not having to look at a cube while solving its unending mystery might seem impossible, but the color initials in Braille have made it just very plausible. The Braille Cube is the perfect gift for yourself or your friend who has difficulty seeing. Measuring 6cm×6cm×6cm, the cube is white in color. Wholly white, with black edges of each little square. Instead of the colorful surface of the squares, the first three letters of each color are present in Braille. 

You hear that? You can feel colors while you solve this Braille Cube. 

Would you, though? As much as we would like to get our hands on this piece, it is unimaginably difficult to solve for those who don’t read Braille. However, if you’re thinking of skipping out, remember that solving the cube as a sighted person is an invitation to acknowledge how difficult life can be without one of our most used senses – the gift of sight. 

In order to maintain pinpoint accuracy, the UV ink used in layers to create the Braille lettering is applied by hand, and if you do decide to get your hands on this beautifully tactile toy, it will reach you in a handcrafted black box.
