Manipulating Cubes

an awesome six cubes diamond

Hi everybody! I’m writing here to share with you what I’m working on in this hot summer here in Rome (with playing banjo :P). I’ve been inspired by Ryan with his cube in an old vid, and also Shay in ALTER EGO has tried to use a cube as a new object to manipulate. I respect so much their work, and they helped me a lot to find new way to use cubes. I’m a multiballer, so why don’t try to morph with cubes? πŸ˜€ I had some ideas working with 8 (90x90x90, very big and HEAVY), and I think it could work, and maybe it could be (or maybe not .__.) an interesting innovation in morphing and multiobjects contact juggling (considering contamination spheres-half spheres- cubes too).

a CUBE!! dedicated to Mcp! :D

So..I’m studying how to morph the same patterns I can do with balls..with CUBES πŸ™‚ I’ve tried the CUBE (obviously), DIAMONDS, PYRAMIDS and RINGS. I can’t spin (yet, I hope :P) them, but…here on this page you can see some photos!

Special Pyramids

While using spheres you are workin on rotation, if you want to manipulate cubes you have to study the translation of the object. I don’t know if pyramids could spin, but it’s possible to morph other shapes (with some little trouble, considering the size of the cubes!)

a nice W :)

I’m publishing them cause I hope they will be helpful and inspiring for you all, and I would be happy if you’ll start to work on this HARD manipulation and share your results and ideas with the community. πŸ™‚

Thanks for the attention!

have a nice contact juggling life

  1. Congratulations! Original high performance innovation πŸ™‚ Hope to see more of this soon.
    Keep it up!!

  2. thank you guys. I’m workin on morphing cubes on a table too. Like the 1-9 game, you know? it works and it’s interesting. see you soon! πŸ™‚

  3. Che l’idea del morphin con piΓΉ cubi te l’ha data busk perΓ² non lo dici, com’Γ¨?

  4. he said: “you should say that the idea of morphing with cubes is from busk”. It’s a long story, elga..busk gave me an advice about the morphing with cubes, and I didn’t write his name in the article. Sorry πŸ™‚


  5. Do they HAVE to be so big ? Sure many more possibilities would open up if they were a hhalf or a third as big….?!
