    Rubik’s Cube review

    We have had the amazing opportunity to review a few super fun games from the classic Rubik’s Cube range by ideal games.

     

    Here are some quick fun facts about the Rubik’s Cube:

    Do you know the Rubik’s Cube was originally named the Magic Cube way back in 1974! 

    Back when the Rubik’s Cube was first introduced in the market in 1974, it was termed as the ‘Magic Cube’ or ‘ Kocka’ in Hungarian. In order to overcome the international patent challenges that had arisen in Hungary, the Ideal Toy Corporation, which had bought the rights to this puzzle, changed the name to ‘Rubik’s Cube’ in 1980.

    The first-ever Rubik’s Cube guide was created by a 13-year-old

    In the initial days of Rubik’s Cube release, a 13-year-old boy, Patrick Bossert, had published a book called ‘You Can Do the Cube’ in 1981. This guide sold over 1.5 million copies. In fact, it had become a universal seller and is it still available for purchase!

    Robots can solve the Rubik’s Cube in under one second

    A Robot named Sub1 solved the Rubik’s Cube in 0.887 seconds! It used two webcams to capture the arrangement of the sides. It then calculated the solution as the Arduino-compatible microcontroller board applied the 20 Steps. The MultiCuber999 robot received a Guinness World Record for solving 9x9x9 cubes.

    The Rubik’s Cube is best-selling toy in history

    The Rubik’s Cube was the best-selling toy in Walmart back in 2015 with over $111 million retail sales! In May 2014, on the 40th birthday of the Rubik’s Cube, Google even displayed a Google Doodle wherein one could play with the interactive 3D Cube.
