Rubik’s cube a 3-D puzzle loved for decades by kids and adults is going digital
Rubik’s Cube is a 3-D combination puzzle invented in 1974 by Hungarian sculptor and professor of architecture ErnőRubik. He meant it to be a teaching device.
This year marks the 30th anniversary of the toy after being named the “Rubik’s Cube” and the company is adding an all new dimension for their fans.
They are launching an app which can be downloaded on iPhones and it offers much more than just 2 by 2, 4 by 4 and 6 by 6 play.
In another development, Israel-based start-up Particular is introducing GoCube, a hi-tech version of the classic toy that promises to make the puzzle fun and interactive for both beginners and experts.
Once people buy GoCube, they need to download its app onto smartphones and tablets. As the user attempts to solve the cube, the app will keep track of the movements and provide help and even tutorials for those that get stuck. They can even compete with other users connected to the app. This smart version of the app will get released by April 2019, and will be as expensive as $119-$159.
