Project cube is a little project to create a rubik's cube in LBP2.
So far I have most of the logic done, only the wires need to be attached. Well, it's not too bad... only 360 wires to have the first part done. After that I have to make the logic for the 12 different turns you can make on the cube (you can turn each side in two directions).
This is how it looks like right now
Every colour has 8 microchips (as you may or may not know, the middle part of the cube doesn't move) and 4 of those microchips look like this
The other 4 look like this
The reason for the two different microchips is that the corner pieces can change place with 6 different movements while the ones in the middle can only change place with 4 different movements. If you don't understand the difference in the microchips, the other one has 6 inputs in the or-switches while the other one has 4.
I think I'll have to re-do that, though (don't worry, doesn't take too long with the magic of copypaste) because I forgot to add an or-switch to the circuit nod up in the microchip, it needs to take 6 or 4 inputs depending on which microchip is in question.
Next up is putting an or-switch into every microchip and then connecting the wires accordingly... after that... well, you'll see
