The Countdown to Maker Faire Bay Area is On!


Time-lapse Rubik’s cube mosaic video

Craft & Design Fun & Games

Entertaining video from YouTuber David Alvarez. I have a hard time imagining that he’s not working from a plan of some kind, but just from watching the video, it rather looks like he’s “free-handing” his Heath-Ledger-Joker mosaic. He just stands there, solves each cube to present the right pattern, and sets it in place, apparently without any kind of reference.

    .. would be when the other face of the mosaic is also a meningful design.

    That this video is in reverse, and that he’s disassembling the mosaic and solving the cubes, rather than the opposite, and it’s easy to imagine how it’s done without a reference. Still a very cool mosaic.

      Of course! That should’ve occurred to me. Thanks.
