Rattled about new Rubik’s Cube
After all these years, Professor Erno Rubik, the inventor of the Rubik’s cube have reinvented his original design and created a contemporary spherical Rubik’s cube. Erno spend the last years experimenting with and contemplating about a puzzle that could follow in the footsteps of his revolutionary cube. In February 2009, his creation, the Rubik’s 360 was introduced to the world; a transparent sphere with two internal spheres, instead of a rotating cube. The aim is to steer the six coloured balls in the center, through the internal plastic spheres that is both independently suspended on a rotating axis into their respective colored ‘home slot’ domes on the outside. Another factor to take in mind is gravity.
