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.

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... ;-)

I was never interested. It seemed a little complicated.

It took him a month? Yet another reason why I'll never try it!

I never even came close to solving one of those things.

I hated that thing. Seen people solve it in seconds and it always made me mad. lol
