The Rubik's cube is perhaps the world's most popular toy, with hundreds of millions of them being sold since its create in 1974. You can travel to nearly every country in the world and find someone twisting the cube away, trying to solve the puzzle. How exactly did this curious little puzzle come about? Well in 1974, a certain professor of architecture in the country of Hungary named Erno Rubik created this puzzle in his attempt to create one that was incredibly difficult to solve. His goal for the cube was to build it in such a way that it could be twisted and turned, yet be sturdy and durable. He could not have known that his convention would become the world’s best-selling toy ever.
Erno always intended for the Cube to be viewed as an object of art. He wanted it to embody many fundamental opposites. A puzzle so simple by design, yet so complex to solve. A design so stable, yet allowing for great dynamics. A device that appears so peaceful, yet has caused people frustration for decades. Have you ever completely solved a Rubik's cube?
