Reasons to Invest

The WOWCube® game console is already in production and available for developers with a signed B2B contract. This is not a prototype or a render. We expect it in retail in 2022. Our cube companion apps are already in both the Apple App Store and the Google Play + we have developed our own apps store and games + we’ve got SDK and WOWStudio ready for all third-party developers. You invest not in a device but in an entire gaming ecosystem.
WOWCube® Entertainment system named one of THE 100 BEST INVENTIONS OF 2021 by Time, received an Edison Award in 2020, CES Innovation Award 2021, and certified as a STEM toy.
The global Educational Toys market size is projected to reach $29.4 billion by 2027 while WOWCube® system has a strong IP portfolio with multiple patents granted and pending in multiple countries. The full software stack is developed from scratch and protects the device from replication

Overview


Welcome to the new dimension of Gaming 

Cubios, Inc. is the creator of the WOWCube® Entertainment System — one of the first-in-class innovative immersive-reality console and gaming platforms that provides the unique experience of interacting with the digital world. Gamers interact with WOWCube® Entertainment System by twisting, shaking, tapping, and tilting the console.


Best of all, our game console and the whole ecosystem have already been built out. Not a prototype or a rendering, but a real device and software ready to use.

 

WOWCube Entertainment System is only available to developers and is currently unavailable for public sale.


This product is just one of our high-tech consumer robotic toys and entertainment game platforms. Cubios, Inc. is developing breakthrough technologies and innovations, and building the ecosystem around the WOWCube® Entertainment System with the help of the company’s in-house game-design studio.


The Problem


Today's game tech misses the mark

Parents are seeking alternatives to traditional gaming systems and want to invest in tools and tech that will develop their child’s cognitive abilities. Video games deemed “useless” or that don’t seem to provide any value are not being sought after like they have been in the past. Today, children are looking for modern entertainment formats and for devices that will evolve along with their evolution.

The Market


To infinity and beyond

The global educational toys market size is projected to reach US $29.3Bn (US $29350.28 million) by 2027, from US $21.5Bn (US $21579.35 million) in 2020.

The United States educational toys market size is projected to reach US $6.6Bn (US $6649.29 million) by 2027, from US $4.9Bn (US $4923.56 million) in 2020.

Since the WOWCube® Entertainment System is a completely new device and first of its kind, we compete mostly for a share of gaming devices, robotic developing toys, and STEM/STEAM entertainment gadgets with an MSRP of $299. With this selling price, we expect that early tech and gadget adopters will also contribute to a large portion of the shares as well.

THE solution



One of the first-in-class edutainment consoles

THIS RUBIK’S CUBE WITH DISPLAYS IN EACH SQUARE MAY BE THE MOST INNOVATIVE GAMING EXPERIENCE OF 2021

Right off the bat, the idea of a dynamic Rubik’s Cube with displays instead of colors sounds like a weirdly awesome idea… The Nintendo Switch wishes it were this clever and innovative!

CES 2021 | Here're the weirdest gadgets showcased at the tech event

The WOWCube Entertainment System by Cubios is the oddest entertainment system we've seen. It is an innovative entertainment system that combines mixed reality with a tangible interface. It takes 3D puzzles to the next level.

CES 2021: The Wowcube is a next-gen puzzle gaming console that I need

The Wowcube is a next-gen puzzle gaming console that I need. My current feelings about the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S is that they are both great consoles, but in reality, there is nothing really special about them.

The WOW of 3D TURNING SCREEN DEVICE REVOLUTIONIZES GAMING

3D’s Wow Factor — Father/Son Device Revolutionizes Gaming and gives entertainment and information a new look. The device is primarily for entertainment and to play games, but it has modes to display current information.

Wowed By Wowcube

his digital twist on the Rubik’s Cube could be the next Pokemon Go. There’s something in it for everyone.” Forbes, Charlie Fink “From the very first moment Max Filin, COO of Cubios Inc., put the prototype in our hands, we were wowed by Wowcube.” Charlie Fink, Forbes

CES 2021: What cool tech has been showcased so far?

Gaming is incredibly popular at the moment and the WowCube is a unique device that allows users to play in a completely new way. The gaming system, which resembles a Rubik's cube, is made up of eight individual cubes which are all connected to one another other.

WowCube raises $1.5M from Xsolla founder for its Rubik’s Cube-like game device

Cubios, the creator of the WowCube handheld gaming cube, has raised $1.5 million from the founder of Xsolla, Aleksandr Agapitov. The funding is part of a total of $4.5 million raised in the company’s latest round. The WowCube is like a Rubik’s Cube with displays on it.

WOW Cube, la mini console che non sapevi di volere

Un oggetto che permette di fare nuove esperienze nel mondo digitale. WOW Cube è stato sviluppato da CubiOs Inc. e nominato dal CES 2021 nella categoria Innovation Awards. Il prototipo era già stato presentato due anni fa nella stessa manifestazione (e l'idea è nata nell'ormai lontano 2016)

WowCube takes gaming to another dimension

magine if you crossed a handheld gaming system with a Rubik's Cube. What you'd get is CubiOs Inc's WowCube, which is currently an honoree in the CES 2021 Innovation Awards. Invented by son and father team Savva and Ilya Osipov, the cube-shaped device has four color IPS screens on each side

THE BEST INVENTIONS OF 2021

With 24 screens laid out on six sides of a movable cube, this is definitely not your parents’ Rubik’s Cube. As with the classic cube game, users twist and turn to change the layout of the tiles, but with the WOWCube ($199), each square features a screen that reacts to every movement.

O jovem prodígio que transformou o cubo de Rubik numa consola de videojogos

Com uma idade em que a maioria das crianças pensa apenas em conseguir acabar os estudos, Savva é um perito em desenvolvimento de software e um engenhoso inventor que se presume ter desenhado a primeira consola portátil de videojogos que se pode girar como se fosse um cubo de Rubik, para mudar o seu

開発したのは12歳の少年とお父さんというのもビックリ。 8つのブロックそれぞれにCPUと加速度計が内蔵され、3面の高解像度ディスプレイを搭載したモジュラーが磁力で合体する、4×4のルービックキューブ風玩具「WOWCube」。 合計24の画面操作にタップやボタンはなく、これを回して、傾けて、振れば、ただ色を合わせるだけではなく迷路やシューティング、ブロックくずしなどが立体的に楽しめるようになります。

WOWCube: самая крутая головоломка десятилетия

Named one of “The 100 Best Inventions of 2021” by Time Magazine, the  WOWCube® system was recognized in 2020 with The Edison Best New Products Award, was a CES Innovation Award honoree in 2021 and became the winner of BEST Innovation Award and German Innovation Award in 2022.  It is certified by STEM as an educational gadget and also serves as a stress-relief tool that has a positive impact on the development of motor skills,  cognitive function and three-dimensional thinking.

Sounds good! Our cube has just become 11.5x times louder!

4 months ago

We care about our audience’s feedback and future customer satisfaction. We kept hearing that the device looked cool, but it was too quiet. So we’ve moved some mountains to deliver in accordance with people’s demands. And in order to do so we had to rebuild the module design and change several components. 

Initially we had a conventional speaker, basic sound tubes and an amp with a well-designed signal path. This set worked quite well for a prototype and the initial batch of cubes. However, further modifications that had to be made to optimize the cube for mass production affected the sound badly. Software experiments with volume didn’t bring the desired results, but we had a goal. 

We decided to make a radical change and transform the approved inner design of the pre-production module. It meant a complete change of the meticulously configured press molds and rework of the motherboard schematics incorporating a new components list. All for the sake of the good sound while achieving well-calculated resonance frequencies. We did it all and came up with a brand new custom speaker in a separate self-contained module.

The combination of a powerful amp, new sound tubes and a unique speaker took the gaming experience to a totally new level. Watch the new sound making a real difference in our latest video.

Huge Success At The Techfluence Virtual Media & Influencer Event

5 months ago

May 4, 2022, WOWCube® Entertainment System took part in the Techfluence Summer Showcase Virtual Media & Influencer Event. It was a huge success with much positive feedback from leading tech media representatives.

An online booth gave an opportunity to join a video chat where company leader could pitch the product to media outlets live. Max Filin, CEO, talked non-stop about the WOWCube® system for three hours and answered all questions about our innovative mixed-reality twisty gadget. Most of the questions were about the invention of the device, its usage and capabilities (games, applications, edutainment, stress-relief, development of motor skills, etc.)

Some comments and questions from our booth visitors, who were anxious to see the WOWCube® system in person:

"Have been an admirer of this cube for the longest time — can't wait for the launch. Thanks, WowCube team — great job running this event. Hope to have a cube or two to test here at GearUP!" — GearUP with Aaron

"Pretty epic — especially for those long travel flights" — TheTechieGuy.com

"This is a great product. How did you come up with the idea to use a Rubik’s cube form factor with LCD touch screens?" — Real Otaku Gamer

"Thanks for the demo and discussion. Looking forward to the production units. Thanks for this, fascinating. Looking forward to trying it for ourselves" — Mac Edition Radio

"Looks addicting nice to have a handheld game" — Fashionsdigest.com

"That thing is AMAZING. Our listeners are going to love hearing about it" — Mac Geek Gab

After the event we had 136 new "leads" and 64 WOWCube® product review requests from visitors, which included tons of tech journalists and influencers. The closer the opening day of pre-orders, the greater the interest in the WOWCube® Entertainment System from the public.

This was the second Techfluence event for us. This year, the online one-day expo brought together 198 attendees from 22 countries, among which were top US media such as NBC Today Show, NY Times, Fox News, CNET, Mashable, Digital Trends, and others. Exhibitors were companies producing technical products and gadgets. The aim of the event was to help tech brands tell their story to all the audiences that matter today.

WOWCube® pre-orders are opening very soon and you will be able to buy our innovative gadget at an attractive price. Follow the news!

New Jigsaw Game From Young Developers

5 months ago

Three genius students from Lucerne University of Applied Sciences and Arts (Switzerland), Christof KälinHidde de Vries and Vinzenz Klass, developed a new game for the WOWCube® Entertainment System.

Jigsaw, as they called it, is a puzzle type game where you fit broken ancient pieces together by rotating the cube. The fewer moves it takes for a player, the higher the score. The game will soon be available at the PlayStore.

It shares the same fundamental mechanics – i.e., rotating the cube to successfully match the respective figures on one side – with the 2x2 Rubik’s Cube. However, if you use the WOWCube® Entertainment System, it comes with much more variations, both visually and difficulty wise.

Jigsaw was coded in the Pawn language in the WOWCube® SDK. “A deciding factor is how the game performs on the physical cube, rather than just on the emulator,” said Christof Kälin, one of the game developers. “We estimate the coding and testing took us around 30 hours, and the game design and asset creation, another 20 hours.”

Cubios, Inc. enables young developers around the world to test their skills in game design using the company's SDK and create their own games. The good news is that the WOWCube® SDK will be accessible to everyone very soon.

WOWCube® Entertainment System As Mixed Reality Gadget

5 months ago

WOWCube® Entertainment System is a prime example of a mixed reality device. What does it mean? Essentially, it represents an augmented reality turned inside out: when a computer enriches real world objects, not a picture you can only see.

WOWCube® System is a cube, a real world object that you can play with. Simultaneously it is a hi-res monitor – 24 monitors, as a matter of fact. You can run a game on it and interact with it by twisting, shaking, taping and tilting the device. Game characters can walk, fly and crawl from one side of the cube to the other. 

Just another toy, some might say. Well, Rubik’s cube was such a “toy”, when it took the world by storm in 1980. Besides, for a child to develop, it is important to add sensory information to the games, just what common video games miss entirely. On the other hand, the WOWCube® Entertainment System is something that is controlled by actions that require a rather advanced eye-to-hand coordination, just what the children need. A dynamic and physically challenging video game, we might say. As if the virtual reality was mixed with the “real” one.

Who Is Our Lead Investor?

Cubios Business Model

6 months ago

Cubios has a complex but promising business model. WOWCube® Entertainment System itself consists of several components – the cube as a hardware unit, the applications and the software ecosystem. The preorders stage and initial product sales are aimed at getting the main revenue streams from the combination of the hardware sales and the games subscriptions. We have our own playstore with in-house developed games and well-known favorites such as Cut the Rope, Space Invaders, 2048 and Classic Rubik’s-like Cube. The games and apps are going to be offered on a subscription basis or as single purchases depending on the popularity of an app. We bet on the GaaS (Games as a Service) model as it has proven to be one of the most efficient ways of software monetisation. 

In order to make the GaaS model work we aim at attracting 3rd party developers. We are going to provide an open SDK to supply a continuously growing variety of apps and games. We already have several contracts with 3rd party developers from different countries. They have made a few apps like Magic Cube, World Clocks and (puzzle game by Swiss students) and continue writing the new ones. 

Moreover, we believe in a hardware licensing model as a possible further step. Our tech is already well-protected against illegal copying as Cubios has built a remarkably robust global patent portfolio. Find out more https://wowcube.com/patents

We also have a wide range of accessories to offer as complementary goods for the cube. We see the high interest in our bags and protective pads from our social media audience and potential customers.

One game is harder, the other is easier. Classic Cube is a 2x2 version of the Rubik’s cube with tips for the newbies. We are also currently developing a more sophisticated 3x3 iteration on the same hardware. Although it may look familiar, it is a unique experience as you twist a 2x2 cubical device trying to solve a displayed 3x3 Rubik’s cube.

If you want a real challenge, WOWCube® System has 2048 in 3D. As the numbers are spread on the 24 screens of the cube, you need a strong spatial reasoning to win in this game. Twist in the right direction to sum up the matching numbers lying nearby. Every twist also brings a new tile of 2 or 4, which can be either an opportunity or a waste of space and a step towards defeat.

More and More Developers Are Joining WOW Team

6 months ago

The Software Development Kit is a part of the WOWCube® ecosystem. It provides an opportunity for developers and game designers to create games and apps for the WOWCube® Entertainment System without the console itself, and then place it on the playstore. 

The SDK includes an emulator that is based on the following free open-source software: Pawn language and visual studio code IDE. 

A completely independent person can create a unique game using our SDK. For example, Anna. She is a 22-year old student of University of California, Irvine, with a major in Game Design. Inspired by the Interstate 60 movie and famous Magic 8 Ball, she started to code in SDK by herself and developed her own Magic Cube game, which was eventually added to the playstore.

Magic Cube would be enjoyed by those who don’t know what to decide and believe in fortune telling. The rules are easy. Just ask a question, twist a WOWCube system and receive a fateful “Yes”, “No”, “Without a Doubt”, etc. It has become the most mysterious game on the WOWCube® Entertainment System. 

After Anna successfully presented her independently developed game, Cubios was happy to welcome this young talent to the WOW Team. She is currently working on ATOMS, an edutainment game for children. The main goal is to show the physical world and its laws in the form of a game. If we had had such a game in our childhood, we would have been much smarter and happier. 

The WOWCube® SDK will be available very soon and we are working to make the system open and accessible to everyone!

Сore Technology enabling WOWCube® Entertainment System

6 months ago

WOWCube® Entertainment System was conceived and prototyped in 2016 by Ilya Osipov,  a computer scientist, entrepreneur with a lifelong passion for mechanical puzzles. Inspired by his son’s idea of a digital cube where heroes move from one screen to another, he decided to develop a WOWCube system that is not a volumetric transformable device composed of eight identical interconnected modules.

Ilya's primary research focus has been on Human Computer Interaction which studies human behavior in a computer environment. To date, he has published more than 30 research articles in peer-reviewed journals, and has served as a reviewer for a number of  scientific publications in the field. One of Ilya’s earlier mechanical-puzzle inventions had been awarded a prize in a world-wide contest.

The primary challenge to be addressed in reducing the idea to practice was developing contact groups supporting energy and communication exchange between the modules. This is necessary to enable single point-of-charge capability for the device.

Ilya has applied his experience and creativity to invent a novel configuration for magnetic contact placement on internal faces of the functional modules based on the device unique topology and transformability.

Mr. Osipov has went on to found Cubios, Inc. with his foundational inventions in the fields of electromechanical contacts and interactive user interface (IUX) forming the core of its extensive global patent portfolio.

Getting ready for mass production

7 months ago

The WOWCube® Entertainment System is being produced on an automatic manufacturing lines. Our thorough research of the factories in China has paid off and now we have a reliable manufacturing partner.

It didn’t happen at once. First 150 pcs of WOWCube® systems were manufactured manually for the developers use. Luckily, our team has 18 years of experience in manufacturing consumer electronics in Asia, so choosing the best component suppliers and the best assembly partner wasn't too difficult.

Now production has been developing and testing. Already the first 250 pieces of WOWCube® Entertainment System have been produced for test reviews of bloggers and journalists. Currently the production capacity with the presence of components is estimated at about 700 pieces per day, but thanks to an established high-tech process, it is very easy to scale it up.

Hello, StartEngine community!

9 months ago

We are happy to be here and welcome you to become part of our company! Many thanks for those who believe in us and have already invested in the WOWCube ® entertainment system. 


How did it all start, you may ask? We were built around one boy's idea. Savva Osipov, when he was just 12 years old, told his dad that it would be cool to create an analog of the Rubik's cube covered by screens, so that there would be all kinds of games. 

Savva's dad, an entrepreneur and inventor, created WOWCube ® entertainment system in 2017, and founded the company Cubios Inc. It took a while to bring the concept from the prototype to the current design that is ready for production on automated manufacturing lines.

Today, our digital cube consists of 24 screens and 8 absolutely autonomous modules. Each module has 3 matrices protected with glass, its own CPU, battery, speaker, motherboard and 18 magnets. We have Space Invaders, Cut the Rope, Key of Light, Classic Cube, Butterflies, Puzzles and many more games, and not only them. 

And here we are! Invite you to make our world more entertaining and intellectual with our WOWCube® system. Become our shareholder, follow the updates and welcome to the new dimension of gaming!
