In 1974, Erno Rubik invented the contraption that would eventually become known as the Rubik’s Cube.
The toy consisted of twenty-seven miniature cubes which made up the Cube in a 3x3x3 array. Although few players would ever solve the puzzle with its 43,252,003,274,489,856,000 possible combination’s, the Rubik’s Cube went on to sell a hundred million units to a worldwide audience in the early 80’s.
In the ensuing decades, the Rubik’s Cube craze faded although it still sells roughly half a million units per annum. To recapture some of that old time magic, Banpresto releases a Rubik’s cushion which measures 30cm square. Purchase three cushions and create a Cube worthy of any Rubik fanatics living room for US$ 25. (via HipHip). Happy Puzzling!
Update : Rubik’s Cube Cushion is available via National Console Support Shop.
