Highlights: ChiTAG 2014 (X-Cube)

ChiTAGFair is always a fun experience for our entire family but last year we took a different spin and let our young correspondents interview inventors and company representatives. Because they enjoyed it so much (and everyone else thought it was cool), we decided to do the same again this year!

We had the pleasure of chatting with Dane Christianson of Moving Parts, LLC. His product, X-Cube, is a shape-shifting 3D logic puzzle that can take on 125 decillion different permutations. Another example of a successful Kickstarter campaign, it first became available at retail in December of last year.

Moving Parts also has another product for those of you that need an easier cube to solve, the Boob Cube! Hopefully it will see the light of day like the X-Cube did!

Want to learn more? Let them know you’d like to see a full demonstration here on SahmReviews! Meanwhile, see what they’re up to by checking them out on Facebook and Twitter.

  1. Boob Cube – That’s for me! Ha! I never did solve my Rubic’s Cube that I had in jr. high.

  2. Debra says:

    What a great Chicago event! I’ll have to look at next years’ dates!!

  3. Amy says:

    Super cool idea to have the kids represent! You all must have so much toy insight with all them cool games you have.

  4. I think it’s SO cool to let young kids get involved in this type of stuff! Not only do they feel “cool” and kind of empowered by being in charge… But it teaches them some awesome skills that will help in the future!

  5. This looks like it was a really great convention. I have YET to solve a Rubik’s cube…

  6. The name Boob Cube made me giggle. I couldn’t even solve my Rubiks Cube when I was young by taking the stickers off and moving them around.

  7. Debbie says:

    That is funny but bet it can catch on. I would have loved to attend this event.

  8. Your daughters are the cutest little interview girls ever. I am going to be working on getting my daughter to get on camera more, she has the personality for it, its just a matter of her putting aside fear and doing it.

    There’s no way I could hand the X Cube, I can’t even do the Rubix cube. LOL My husband and I both saw this and said “yea right!” LOL My brother on the other hand can solve these things in about half hour.

  9. Rosey says:

    I sent ’em over a message and bcc’d you in on it. I hope you get it, I’m very interested in seeing how it works!

  10. Jen says:

    FUN! I wish we had a toy fair near me. This may be worth traveling for!

  11. Donna Ward says:

    Wow, Scott – Amazing fun – that you actually did a video interview and I could see this cube – not interested in it now! But there was a time and the regular cube kept my son busy – Great work you’ve got here with your reviews!

  12. sounds like fun! I cant imagine getting to see all those toys and games up close and meet the people behind the games.

  13. My inner child loves attending these Toy Fairs. They always give me great christmas gift ideas too!

  14. LaVonne says:

    I think it’s great that young people are inventing cool games and toys. Thanks for sharing this video! Very awesome!

  15. Daisy says:

    We’ve never been to a toy fair, but I would love to go. Your video makes me ready to want to visit one with my son!

  16. Raijean S says:

    I haven’t made it in the last few years, but it looks like you guys had a blast!

  17. I was never able to solve the Rubiks Cube and I tried. I even tried removing stickers and still couldn’t get it done.

    Usually a patient person but never did conquer the Rubiks Cube!
