Cube is a collection of open-source tools, designed to provide the ability to measure magnetic fields in 3D and to visualize the results. It uses commonly available components and software to achieve this. The primary sensor is Melexis MLX90393, often used in joysticks and similar devices. The electronics are based around a common NXP development kit with an additional extension board. The software is written in Python and uses Mayavi toolkit to visualize the data. A new major revision of Cube is in development, which aims to be fully OSHW (open source hardware) compliant and have universal sensor support. The name Cube arised from the shape of the mechanical part - it is somewhat cube shaped.
