We've pondered the potential for 3D display cubes for years now, but the gCubik looks to bring us a bit closer to a final concept. Measuring just 10 centimeters (about four inches), this diminutive display device visualizes objects in all three dimensions on the facets of a physical cube. Created by Japan's National Institute of Information and Communications Technology (NICT), the device could see uses in science, business, and, most importantly, videogames. The little guy will be shown next month in Tokyo and then in August at Siggraph 2008 in the US, with hopes of adding tighter resolution and real-world applications shortly thereafter.
