What are SpaceCubes?
The Space Cubes project is a technical exploration of interactive NFTs. The NFT meta data standard includes an animation_url which usually points to an MP4 or gif hosted on IPFS. OpenSea supports HTML files for the animation_url which opens up a lot of possibilities and was the inspiration for the Space Cubes project. Each Space Cube token's meta data points to a jpg image as well as an HTML bundle which renders a <canvas> element with a WebGL powered interactive version, both hosted on IPFS.
