We study random subcube intersection graphs, that is, graphs obtained by selecting a random collection of subcubes of a fixed hypercube $Q_d$ to serve as the vertices of the graph, and setting an edge between a pair of subcubes if their intersection is non-empty. Our motivation for considering such graphs is to model 'random compatibility' between vertices in a large network.

For both of the models considered in this paper, we determine the thresholds for covering the underlying hypercube $Q_d$ and for the appearance of $s$-cliques. In addition we pose a number of open problems.
