Holy cow!!!!!!!
That exceeds belief!
Way wicked cool ...
Having read the "about", I feel vendicated in that my first impression was of a modern day Rubick's cube.
Oh, did I mention - holy cow!!!

If that guy didn't wake up with a quinzillion dollars in the bank and a rose on his pillow, Nintendo, Sony, AND Microsoft are all simultaneously asleep at the wheel...

I don't think its real.. I think its just cubes with video superimposed over it.
Am I wrong?

Yes and no.

The cubes have no video on them. It's augmented reality. The cubes have dots on their faces. A camera reads the dots and sends the appropriate commands to the computer. The camera displays your hands and the cubes on the screen with the game superimposed on the cubes "inside the monitor". You feel it and you see it and you see your hands, so the brain says it's real. Hence "augmented reality"...

Wow! I was really smooth and all. The images turn well at the same speed as the cube! It's really nice!

That game looks like it's going to be boring very fast tought. But I don't know how he could use this to create other games. Just a CS that works like this must be so cool.

Consider all the game control possibilities. You have effectively virtual rooms linked together. Think The Sims in honest-to-goodness 3D - just as a start. Then think about virtual environments. The list is limitless, imho.
