World’s #1 puzzle

Rubiks speed cube 3×3

1974: Ernö Rubik—a professor from Budapest in Hungary—wanted to help his students understand three-dimensional problems. His solution? The Rubik’s Cube! Ernö created the first working prototype in 1974. The 3×3 cube has 43,252,003,274,489,856,000 combinations, but only 1 solution. When Ernö Rubik built his first Cube, it took him over a month to solve it.

1982: The Museum of Modern Art in NYC selects Rubik’s Cube for its permanent collection.

2017: Rubik’s Brand enjoys a record year with retail sales reaching $250 million.

2020: For the trainspotters: as a big fan of this legendary puzzle [I solved it only once!] with its iconic design I have added a favicon of it to this website. 😉
