Updating a Classic

This is an award-winning design: a Rubik’s cube for the blind designed by Zhiliang Chen. He says “By taking use of the very basic attributions of different materials common in everybody’s life, we can redesign most of the traditional toys and games available for the blind as well.” As someone with a close relative who is visually impaired, I like to see designers think outside the box, or the cube.
