The fiendishly difficult, but iconic Rubik’s Cube has a mind boggling 43,252,003,274,489,856,000 possible combinations – but only ONE solution. If you were to scramble a Rubik’s Cube every second it would take 1,400 Trillion years for you to reach all the possible configurations, there would then be enough of them to cover the earth in 273 layers of Rubik’s Cubes.
Celebrating its 40th Anniversary in 2014 and once again enjoying enormous popularity worldwide, the best-selling toy of all time has sold over 350 million, since its launch in 1980. Its allure has been magnified by the power of social media, providing super-celebrity status for the ‘wonder boy’ Speedcubers, the world record for which is held by Mats Valk and stands at 5.55 seconds.
In 2014, Rubik’s Cube and Google will launch the Beyond Rubik’s Cube, an interactive exhibit exploring the cubes influence on mathematics, science, technology, art & popular culture.
