Weekend Fun: DIY Magnetic Acrylic Rubik's Cube (Video)

If you're bored and looking for something to do this weekend, Instructables.com has an awesome tutorial showing you how you can make a cool magnetic version of the original rubik's cube using 27 3/4" clear acrylic cubes and 108 D32 neodymium disc magnets. Here's a small video showing you how the thing works. Enjoy the show!

  • lol

    that definitely beats breaking fingernails prying the individual cubes apart in an attempt to convince people you're a Rubik's Cube genius.

    Although, just to be clear I grew out of that a looooog time ago ;o)

    I did buy a book on how to solve them once. That's quite sad too isn't it? lol

  • A few years back, I knew a guy who would ask us to scramble his cube in a random fashion, look at it for 60 seconds, close his eyes, and just put back the damn thing in its original state.

    This guy is one of those people that makes you feel like a DUH kind of person.

  • haha that's just exceptional... there's no competing with something like that. That's game over.

    Very cool thing to be able to do though.

    Makes me want to find my cube & book to see if my problem solving skills have improved. I would hope they have but maybe it's best to not go there...

    ;o)
