Sifteo Cubes are a fun, innovative gaming system unlike anything else you can buy (see the story behind Sifteo Cubes). The sleek design boggles the mind; from the time you insert the first battery you are thinking, “Wow, this was hard to build!” Sifteo Cubes don’t just look good, they actually deliver on their promise of intelligent play.
