I have a friend who lost his sight a few years ago, and it got me thinking about how much that must really suck. I use my eyes all the time, I don't know what I would do without them, he must miss out on so much. I sure would like to make his life easier some how.....
We were taking and for what every reason the subject of rubik's cube came up. Not only had he never seen one, when he did have his sight, but he didn't know what a rubiks cube is. You try and explain a rubik's cube to a blind man. So I thought how about a make a braille rubiks cube for him and then he wont have to miss out on all the frustration exasperation, annoyance, anger, vexation, irritation, bitterness, resentment; disappointment and discouragement that comes with trying to solve that infernal puzzle.
You don't realy need too much stuff, Just a rubiks cube, some double sided automotive tape, some alcohol to clean the cube and 3D printed tiles. There are nine tiles on each side so 54 tiles in all.
You will also need a sharp hobbie knife and a board to cut on and a clean well lit work area.
