After seeing the movie Cube in which a group of people are trapped in a three-dimensional cubic maze, we decided to recreate the Cube experience on the pebble watch.

In PebbleCube, you are trapped in a cubic maze and must find your way out. The rooms that you'll see along the way seem to somehow remind you of locations around the Cornell campus (thanks to the Cornell Open Data Initiative API). This allows you to make your way through the cube and realize when you are travelling hopelessly in circles.

An early design choice in this project was to use the new pebble js API. Unfortunately, this API is still very much in beta which led to a lot of difficulty and stability issues. A lot of features that we had hoped for were not supported in javascript. However, we were still able to finish the hack and throw an extra easter egg of our favorite inspirational figure.
