Happy Birthday Rubik’s Cube: Have fun with Google’s interactive doodle

Today is the 40th birthday of the Rubik's Cube. Google is celebrating with an animated doodle that offers you the chance to solve the puzzle online.

 

In 1974, a Hungarian architect, Erno Rubik, wanted to find a working model that would help explain three-dimensional geometry. This is how Rubik's Cube was invented. He made the first cube himself and it took him one month before he succeeded in solving it. The Cube was licensed in 1980 and by January 2009 had sold more than 350 million units worldwide.

The Cube has six faces, each one made up of nine stickered squares. Each row and column are independently manipulable around a central pivot which means that squares can be moved on diverse position of the 3D cube. The goal is to return the cube to its original configuration, with each face one colour: orange, yellow, green, white, blue and red.

 

Very challenging.

 

“Speedcubers” are the people who race each other to complete cubes in less than six seconds. Believe it or not, there are over 43 quintillion (a 1 with 18 zeros after it) permutations of the cube and over 54 unique ways to place the coloured squares over the six faces.
