One of the more interesting accessories that I saw on my desk for a long time was the Merge Cube. The soft foam is durable and the range of applications available makes it a great gift for kids and adults, and makes me think schools have applications for it. There’s no shortage of games for this augmented reality platform, including some of my favorite Merge Cube puzzles, but now there’s a great educational use too.

Here’s a look at some of my favorites!

Many of these apps also work on the Merge VR headset, allowing the student to use both hands while interacting with the cube, making the learning experience even better. The headset might be a little pricey for schools at around $49, but Merge is introducing a new, thinner version aimed at kids this summer at a low $30 and possibly educational wholesale prices.
