Fact of the Day: Magic Cube

Despite inventing the game originally called the Magic Cube, Erno Rubik took about a month to solve his own puzzle. His cube would later be renamed the Rubik's Cube.

  1. I had a Rubik's Cube as well when I was young(er) - my all time record to solve the problem was 57 seconds - one of my friends was much faster! But not as fast as the robot here... ;-)
