It's here. It's back. And it's just as dashed difficult as you remember. Curse of the early 1980s and most sought-after distraction at school breaktime (even moreso than the automatic drinks machine) Erno Rubik's masterful invention had the whole world scratching its collective head for years. Now you can scratch yours all over again. The cube - originally known as The Magic Cube - was nothing short of a global phenomenon.
300,000,000 have been sold worldwide, of which a staggering 100,000,000 changed hands in the period from 1980-82. And, with a impossibly large 43,252,003,274,489,856,000 (that's 43.2 quintillion) possible permutations, it's no surprise that many of those original 300 million are now to be found slowly decomposing in landfill sites all over the world. This is the greatest shame of all.
And the reason that gadgetshop can now procure you a mint version of the original to discombobulate your brain for old time's sake. Now introducing Rubiks 360. It may sound easy, but be under no illusion, this is the hardest Rubik's puzzle yet! Spin, twist, lock and rotate the transparent sphere; featuring niches that correspond to coloured spheres inside. The first true puzzle from Erno Rubik to challenge the classic cube for innovation and difficulty.
The puzzle is provided pristine and complete. You may wish to keep it that way. Now go. Twist.
