I can honestly say that I’ve never managed to successfully solve a Rubik’s Cube. I remember having one as a kid, and getting very frustrated with it. Sometimes I wonder if I couldn’t solve one now that I’m older, but seeing how they’ve already updated the classic puzzle, I might as well move on to it.
Yes, that strange object with many mirrored sides is the updated Rubik’s Cube, now called a Rubiks Mirror Blocks puzzle. Each row of blocks is a slightly different size than the one next to it, making it even more challenging than the original. It looks like they will be going on sale in Japan sometime in the next couple of weeks for around $20. No word yet on a US release.
