(Newser) – Santa is already kicking back and thinking what will be under trees next Christmas. High on the list is the Fentix cube, an innovative, colorful, electronic device that can detect up from down. Inventor Andrew Fentem tells the BBC it can be adapted for many uses - games platform, puzzles, as a computer interface, and game controller.

Fentem posted video of the Fentix Cube on YouTube and was inundated with interest.. "Because of absurd level of interest generated by YouTube, everyone wants the device," he said. "I'm being bombarded by toy firms. I'd like the cube to go mass market. I'd like to see it in people's homes."
