The Rubik’s Cube Turns 40 Today! [Video]
If you’re looking for ways to procrastinate on a Monday, I’ve got a suggestion for you: head over to Google.
Today is the Rubik’s Cube’s 40th anniversary and Google has posted an interactive Rubik’s Cube to the search engine’s home page.
I got as far as nine moves and then gave up.
The Rubiks’ Cube was invented by Hungarian sculptor Erno Rubik in 1974 and has been a favorite toy of nerds ever since.
Since 1974 over 350 million Rubik’s Cubes have been sold worldwide – making it the best selling toy of all time!
The Cube is a math-based toy and apparently there is a logical way to solve it, but math was never my strongest subject, thus I’ve never solved a Rubik’s Cube in my entire life and I doubt I ever will!
It even took Rubik an entire month before he was able to solve it for himself!
