pCubee is an personal cubic display that is light and compact enough to be held in one hand. It uses perspective-corrected rendering and real-time physics simulation to show 3D virtual scenes in a box.

I developed the original Cubee concept and prototype for SIGGRAPH E-Tech in 2006. The pCubee prototype won Best Demonstration at ACM Multimedia in December 2009 and I presented a paper describing the technology at CHI in April 2010.
