Today I decided to post about this wonderful little thing called the Rubik’s Cube. It is a well established fact that playing with the Cube has mental perks. The number of algorithms and techniques needed to solve it just once has to stimulate the brain somehow. As Brian Rohrig said, “Each year, I look forward to introducing the Rubik’s cube in my classes. There is something special about this colorful, 3-D puzzle that seems to captivate the imagination of even the most lethargic student. This activity demonstrates the tremendous amount of untapped potential a student has and remains to be unlocked. The Rubik’s cube has been a valuable key in unlocking it.”
The benefits of the Rubik’s Cube are –
- It makes you rack your brains which is a good mental exercise.
- Improves spatial awareness.
- It improves concentration and focus.
- Develops an ‘out-of-the-box’ thinking approach
The Hungarian architect Erno Rubik invented the Rubik’s Cube in 1974. The Rubik’s cube is also known as the Magic Cube. There are 432,003,274,489,856,000 ways to arrange the cube, but only one results in a solved cube.. The Rubik’s cube first became available to the public in 1977. The number of cubes sold till date are 350 million.
In addition to the standard 3 × 3 × 3 cubes-per-side variety, Rubik’s cubes also come in the following versions: 2 × 2 × 2, 4 × 4 × 4, 5 × 5 × 5, 6 × 6 × 6, and 7 × 7 × 7 cubes per side.
The current world record for solving the cube is 7.08 seconds. Erik Akkersdijck at the Czech Open achieved this record in the year 2008, sponsored by the World Cube Association. The World Cube Association also recognises records for solving the cube blindfolded, with one hand, and with both feet.
So what are you waiting for, Go ahead and order one for yourself right now. Because I think it’s just about time someone breaks that record. And who knows, with enough practice, it could be you !
