Next to Rubik’s 360 yet another Rubik’s puzzle will be released soon. This time it will be an electronic version of the world famous Rubik’s Cube that have sold nearly 350 million Cube over the last 25 years.

To create this high tech gadget an engineering team has been working on the Rubik’s TouchCube for over three years. Just swipe a finger across one of the squares and the lights will follow your moves, make an L-shape to turn the top face of the Cube a quarter turn. Rubik’s TouchCube’s motion-detecting accelerometer only recognizes moves made on the top side of the Cube, so that a player’s fingers won’t move the lights on other sides when holding it. Rubik’s TouchCube offers you a built-in solver, so now you can easily learn how to solve the Cube step by step. Ask for a hint or watch Rubik’s TouchCube solve itself.

Although I like the idea, I wonder why I would need an electronic version of Rubik’s Cube if I can also solve the original Rubik’s Cube in an environmentally-friendly way without any batteries?

Rubik’s TouchCube, is available from Amazon.co.uk and is appropriate for children ages 8 and up. It will retail for under US$ 149.99. For more information, you can visit the Rubik’s TouchCube website. Happy Puzzling!
