A 3D combination puzzle invented in 1974 by Hungarian sculptor and architect Erno Rubik.
After a while I could do it blindfolded.
It always made me feel stupid that I couldn’t and Rubik could.
The Rubik’s cube is a 3D combination puzzle invented in 1974 by Hungarian sculptor and architect Erno Rubik. It was called the Magic Cube at the time of invention. By January 2009, 350 million units had been sold, making it the world’s bestselling toy and puzzle game. It also won the German Game of the Year special award in 1980.
The goal of the game is to arrange the individual sections in such a way that each face of the cube has only one color on it. Each section of the cube can be rotated either way. A standard Rubik’s cube has 3 sections horizontally and vertically. Other variations exist, such as 2x2x2, 4x4x4, 5x5x5 and even a mammoth 17x17x17.
The colorful cube is still relevant today, as it was many decades ago. It is one of those rare toys that every generation gets their hands on.
