Looking for souvenir to take back with you from Croatia? Check out CRO cube, an award-winning innovation created by Sunčica Taslak…

CRO cube is a multi-functional wooden cube which not only acts as a magnet for the fridge, but is also a multimedia tourism brochure. The cube has photos of various Croatian cities on the surface, as well as a magnet and a QR code on one side. Connecting the QR code to a computer, mobile phone or other media, promotional videos and photos of the destination will be displayed. CRO cube can act as magnet and also can be used as a memory game for kids when a group of them are collected. The CRO cube is handmade using local products.

Sunčica says the initial idea was to put photos on a stone, but with the help of a friend they came up with the idea to put a QR code on the cubes which can connect to the internet and display photos and even soundbites of the likes of Zadar’s famous musical sea organ.

It also received a special award for the best tourism invention at the 11th Budi Uzor awards for young entrepreneurs. Look out for the CRO cube next time you are in Croatia.
