Smart Rubik’s Cubes are nothing new. We have covered a bunch of them that combine with an app to show you how to solve them faster. The Spin! Magic Cube is also worth a look. It is a 3×3 puzzle with an app that shows how to solve from any configuration.
The cube state is detected with image recognition. The toy has a plastic construction and works with iOS/Android devices. It costs just under $10 at this time.
