How the Inventor of the Rubik’s Cube Cracked His Own Code

  • Опубликовано: 10 окт 2017
  • Since the 1980s, the Rubik’s Cube has captivated the minds of puzzle solvers around the globe. But how did one of the world’s most addictive and prolific puzzles come to be? It all began in the beautiful city of Budapest, in the beautiful mind of Ernő Rubik, a design and architecture lecturer looking for a tactile way to teach his students about three-dimensional space. But the story’s real “twist” came when the creator had to engineer a solution to his self-made conundrum. Think you have what it takes to crack the code? Take it up with the master himself.
    This Great Big Story was inspired by Genesis.

    Depending on how much time you have and how fast of a learner you are, you can learn to solve one anywhere from one week to one month.
