High Quality Materials
The GoCube smart cube is made of ABS plastic and nylon. For decorative purposes, a colorant is typically added. ABS plastic is one of the finest materials. As such, the cube is durable and can withstand impact.
The magnets in the cube enables smooth play. When I speedcube with my traditional cube, sometimes the moves are stuck/rough, especially when solving the last layer. So, having smooth movements is great.
Besides the use of the finest materials, the cube features a sticker-less modern design. Easy to use, you can embark on missions or use the smart cube as a controller to play third-party games, missions, and mini-games.
Internal LED Lights
It has internal LED lights that light up with white light and enhance your gameplay. Designed to consume less energy, the LED lights are environmentally friendly and run for thousands of hours.
This is beneficial as the cube runs on a Lithium rechargeable battery. On a single charge, the battery provides 60 hours of playtime. As such, you can compete with friends and other cubers from around the world. Whether at home or on the go, you can improve your hand-eye coordination and memorization skills.
