Google's Digital Rubik's Cubes Lab Lets People Reinvent The Classic Game
The tech company built a series of Chrome experiments to commemorate the 40th birthday of the puzzle.
Back in 1974, Hungarian sculptor and professor of architecture Ernő Rubik created his now world famous Rubik's Cube as a teaching tool to help his students understand the concept of space and the three dimensions better. Little did he know that the Rubik's Cube would turn out to be something so much more. The cube first became widely popular in the 1980's, and continues to fascinate, puzzle, frustrate, and amaze people of all ages. It has also helped get kids from all over the world interested in math and problem-solving.
