In this instructable I am going to show you how to make a Rubik's cube that houses a speaker and is fully functional. It is compatible with all wireless Bluetooth devices or can be used with a 3.5 mm audio jack. The integrated battery can be loaded via USB as shown in the second picture.

As you can see in the pictures the plugs are well hidden, so it is a great way to prank your friends, by making the cube talk to them.

Here is a video of the cube. I'm sorry, that the sound is so hard to hear. I can't wait to get my new camera.

Step 1: Stuff you need

  • Veho VSS-006-360BT Bluetooth Wireless Speaker (e.g. on amazon.com)
  • 2x2x2 Rubik's Cube (e.g. amazon.com)
  • Paint (primer is good but not 100% necessary)
  • Sanding paper
  • Wood glue
  • Wood filler (Spatula or something else to apply it)
  • 1.5 mm high quality ply wood
  • Solder
  • Wire
  • Stickers
  • Strong glue
  • Laser cutter (or online laser cutting service, e.g. ponoko.com)
  • Soldering iron
  • Pliers
  • Small Phillips head screwdriver
  • Hot glue gun

I like this project, and think A Rubik's Cube looks much better than a regular speaker.
Hi, thank you! I need to keep my hands busy while doing stuff and pranking friends is always fun ;-). Do you have any idea when the algorithm for making finger joints in Make 123D will be released? I've seen <a href="http://www.instructables.com/id/Tetris-Bookshelf/#intro" rel="nofollow">amandaghassaei</a> and <a href="http://www.instructables.com/id/Tetris-Bookshelf/#intro" rel="nofollow">James</a> using it and it would be extremely helpful.
it's still in the works, still not sure when it will be public, sorry!
Oooo yeh. I want a copy of that too. Last time I used it it was only for Macs :( Couldn't find mention of it on Google :(
Still hard at it I see... looks great, as always!
