Almost 4 months ago, I wrote an opinion piece on how the Cube will forever be Deadmau5’s greatest stage design, and the follow-up cage just didn’t match up. Joel’s response was… tepid.

Almost 4 months later, Joel is sharing concept designs for a Cube v2, so I guess I can say “I told you so.”

Deadmau5 is creating the cube using Unreal Engine, software most commonly seen in applications with video games like DmC: Devil May Cry and Gears Of War. However, its application can also be used in VR construction and design (along with Maya), like how deadmau5 is choosing to use it currently.

Prototyping cubev2 in VR with Unreal. Possibly the coolest shit in the world.

We also have a very loose idea of when this design is going to drop – not before Spring Awakening, at least.

The cage is also “more or less retired” at this point.

A VR concert of mau5 in the future also doesn’t seem like a far off impossibility, which is pretty awesome.
