What is it?
The B-Cube is a 3D data visualization tool. Instead of staring at a mess of data, graphs, and a series of curves, users can easily point out what is the most striking in a series of data when looking at a 3D representation. Users can pinpoint the peaks and valleys in a data set and even physically select a data point that they are more interested in.
Instead of staring at this...
Understand your data with this!
1. Send Data to B-cube
Select the data you're interested in seeing visualized in physical form. Whether you're looking at data via a server, excel, SQL, you can send the data over to the B-cube.
2. B-cube shifts to your data
The B-cube is made of a series of columns, each of which represents a data point. Customize your set to show what you're interested in, whether you want the cube to be showing historical data or be continually updating to demonstrate live data.
Each cube is outfitted with multi-colored LEDs, allowing you to stretch your data out to a fourth dimension.
3. Choose what interests you
See an unexpected peak or valley that interests you? Pick that cube and more details about that data point will appear on your desktop.
