The Friendship cube is a conscript ( constructed script ). The main design is based on the blue symbol in the image. The alphabet in black is the simple font version of the conscript.
Looking at the symbol you will notice there are a many individual pieces. Each piece is a binary bit with a binary value. Each letter of the alphabet is assigned a value and and represented by "flipping the correct bits on and off.
There are also systems for numbers as well. With the amount of bits available there are a massive number of permutations and creative applications.
The following is a explanation of Friendship cube conscript in the words of its author, Graeme Kilshaw.
What is the Friendship Cube?
The Friendship Cube is a teaching tool. It introduces a simple standard for communication in visual binary. In visual binary, each visual component represents a binary placeholder. In friendship cube code, there are 22 visual binary placeholders representing 22 phonetic sounds. Symbols on the cube rotate to create letters and combine to create visual binary anagrams. Letters are arranged according to the vocal sound. The vowels AEIOU are all horizontal, representing outward breath. The letters BPMFV are vertical line symbols, representing guidance of breath with the lips. The squares XC, HW, LD, TN, and RSYJ represent guidance of breath with the tongue. All letters in the English alphabet are represented in each friendship cube. Phonetically, 4 letters are composite sound-forms… J+Y=G, C+X=K, C+W=Q, and S+Y=Z. Students use the friendship cube to develop useful skills by playing friendship cube games.
What makes the Friendship Cube Fun?
Friendship Cube people and games make it fun. Friendship cube games teach hand-eye coordination, touch recognition, communication, memory, strategy, navigation, literacy, numeracy, group interaction, and teamwork skills. Games match the skill level of players. Games teach more than just cognitive skills. Friendship cube games teach social skills, values, morals, and teamwork. Friendship Cubes can be virtual simulations or physical interface tools. Physical Friendship Cubes are used with webcam pattern recognition technologies, enabling fun and educational experiences for players. Virtual friendship cubes can be manipulated with a standard keyboard or even with new devices like the Emotiv EPOC, enabling hands-free typing. (See Emotiv.com) Not only is the Friendship Cube more fun, it s also more useful and practical than older teaching tools.
Why get a Friendship Cube? The graphic symbol system on the friendship cube enables more efficient and capable interface than ever before. The friendship cube is a recognized standard for digital interface and communication. With your new friendship cube, you will learn universal communication skills and have tons of fun with thousands of new friends online and offline. Friendship Cube Games and programs enable interactive friendships that transcend language, belief, race, and nationality. Once you have learned the 22 symbols, you earn our glow-in-the-dark friendship cube group badge. The badge is like proof that you are part of our inside circle, creating value for our Friendship Cube Group. Badge-holders work as a team to create value for people and organizations. In the friendship cube group, badge-holders co-develop and co-promote friendship cube solutions. Friendship Cube Group members focus on activating the technologies that enable humanity to enter into a globalized knowledge economy via full activation of the social and semantic web. (See Web3.0) Every day, more cubes, sites, applications, interfaces, and games are being made available through our friendship cube group.
Who is The Friendship Cube Group?
We are a business success story. As a group, we teach new ways of thinking that educate, empower, and unite people. When new initiates are given their cube, their sponsor tells them, “The world will be yours when you see it from every angle.” When new initiates are given the keys to the cube code, they are told, “You have been conscripted.” Once conscripted, group members will be told to learn the 22 symbols of the constructed script. Once these symbols are committed to memory, the initiate earns his or her glow-in-the-dark badge. All members of the friendship cube group carry a glow in the dark badge with our 3D cube symbol.
