Rubik’s Cube is 40

And that means it’s older than me, lol. Okay.

Now, if you have to Google it to find out what Rubik’s Cube is, you’re too young.

So, history tells us that the cube was invented in 1974 by a Hungarian professor named Erno Rubik. He created the world’s best selling toy ever. Of course, he didn’t know then what it would become, he was just a teacher passioned by puzzles who was trying to explain his students about spatial relationships.

The first cube was made out of wood and paper and was originally named ‘Magic Cube’. It wasn’t until 1980 that it received its name as the Rubik’s Cube.

Back then, it took Erno Rubik over a month to solve his own puzzle. Now, in our days, it took an 18-year-old teenager only 5.55 seconds to do it. He set the record last March and until now no one could break it.
