Sifteo Cube SystemAt CES 2011, Sharon Vaknin checks out the Sifteo Cube System, digital interactive blocks that communicate wirelessly with each other.
-Hi. I'm Sharon Vaknin for cnet.com. I'm here with the First Look at the Sifteo Cube System. Now, these are digital interactive blocks that communicate wirelessly with each other. And the way it works is you download games onto your computer through Sifteo software and from there you can play a variety of games like puzzle games. For instance, there is one called Chroma Shuffle. It's kind of similar to Bejeweled where you line up blocks with similar tiles to eliminate that. There are also adventure games and learning games because Sifteo is actually thinking that this will be a great tool for students. Right now, Sifteo's creating its own apps, but it hopes that [unk] developers will be able to create them as well. Sifteo launched an early access program where a lucky few were able to snag these for only $99, but when these come out in the fall, they'll be available for $149 and each additional cube will cost $45. For cnet.com, I'm Sharon Vaknin and this is the First Look at the Sifteo Cube System.
