Step 1: GATHER YOUR MATERIALS

Before you start your build you want to make sure you have all you materials so you don't run into any inconviences along the way. Your first material is quite obvious, a rubiks cube! I did not own one before the making of this project so I ordered one off Amazon. The next material you'll need are the gemstones for this project. You'll need to obtain 5 different shapes. Of each shape you will need 9 gemstones. I also ordered these off amazon! These are the only materials you'll need and it's low in cost.

Step 2: THE BUILD

Take your rubix cube and the shape of your choice in gemstones and place nine of them on the desired color side in each block. Repeat this 4 times so you'll have 5 out of 6 of the sides covered. Remember to use a diffeent shape each time.

Step 3: END PRODUCT

Looking at these picture is a sample of a turnout of this product. Your build might vary depending on the gemstones you use. In conclusion these particular gemstones were a success. They made the product more dense, gave it a pleasant look, and several users of the product said it gave it better grip. I hope this could bring joy to someone who is visually impaired!

    Nice solution to this problem. I can see how anyone could benefit to being able to do this by touch. It would give people something to fidget with while watching TV (for instance).
