The Rubik’s Cube becomes one of the most popular toys. It appeals to youngsters as well as adults. The goal is to make each side a solid color. Many people are confused by the puzzle.
The Rubik’s Cube was invented in 1974 by the Hungarian sculptor and professor of architecture Ernő Rubik. Originally called Magic Cube by its inventor, this puzzle was renamed “Rubik’s Cube” by a famous toy company called Ideal Toys in 1980 and also won the 1980 German Game of the Year special award for Best Puzzle. It is said to be the world’s best-selling toy, with some 300,000,000 Rubik’s Cubes sold worldwide.
Fascinated with the concept of space, Rubik spent his free time designing puzzles that would make his students think in new ways about threedimensional geometry. In the spring of 1974, Rubik imagined a small cube, with each side constructed of moveable squares. By the fall of 1974, his friends had helped him create the first wooden model of his idea. At first, Rubik just enjoyed watching how the squares moved as he turned one section and then another. However, when he attempted to put the colors back again, he ran into difficulty. Oddly attracted by the challenge, Rubik spent a month turning the cube this way and that way until he finally realigned the colors. When he handed other people the cube and they also had the same fascinated reaction. He realized he might have a fun toy puzzle on his hands.
