Parent Category: Toys
The Rubik's Cube was invented in 1975 and has confused people ever since. The object of this puzzling, multi-colored cube is to twist and turn it to get each side showing one color. Ask questions here about the history of the Rubik's cube as well as tips and tricks on solving it.
No it is not this ruined my cube and for some reason it was making me type fast and the way you can tell if its hasn't gone right all you haft top do is listen and you will here a screeching spring noise and if you here that than It also might be ahred to turn your cube and that is also another sign...
There's red orange blue green white and yellow
the Rubik's cube was invented in 1980 by the hungarion Erno  Rubik's, when the cube first came out it costed $1,99. but as the  toy became more and more popular the price rose to $10 by the year  1990.   I suppose the price in 1987 was somewhere between $5 and $10
On a... 2x2x2: 243x3x3: 544x4x4: 965x5x5: 150
It is IMPOSSIBLE to do that without also switching two corner pieces in the process. Look up T-permutation.

I'm not a hundred percent sure but it depends on how long. If it's  only 1sec-1min it would make it warm, maybe even to 3-5 minutes as  well. Around 5-6 minutes the stickers would start to peel, and fall  off around 7-15 minutes. It might start to melt around 30 minutes,  and this is only if it...
A soda cube would melt faster since it has sodium in it.
no, because this cube don't create -edit- actually, maybe... im not sure if this vid is fake or not... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0cedyW6JdsQ
cause its fun and everybody loved it.
All the little cubes except the one at the middle will have 1, 2 or 3 faces with paint on them, ie 26 of them will have some paint on them: 0 faces painted - 1 cube 1 face painted - 6 cubes (the centre ones of each side) 2 faces painted - 12 cubes (the ones in the centre of where two sides meet) ...
1 cubic cm = 0.06102 cubic inch 1 cubic inch = 16.39 cubic cm
probably not cause it is not electronic
Buy a new one? There may be individual parts sold on a website that sells cubes, but I'm not sure if that's available for a 2x2.
It was most popular in 1985, 5 years after it came out. It was estimated that in 1985 about 1/5 of the entire world played it!
It was popular everywhere. Especially in Asia, Asians could do it real fast.
Erno Rubik invented the Rubik's cube and the company "Ideal Toy's" were the manufactures
It depends on how well you know how to solve it. With practice, it takes me about a minute
You should note that this answer is only for the classic 3x3x3 cube (no other dimensions or sudokube, special patterns etc). I recommend having a Rubik's cube with you as you are reading this. Let's begin.   The first thing you must realize is how a Rubik's cube works. There are 26 cubies that...

Mats Valks in 5.55 sec. world record solve at the Zonhoven Open in  Belgium. It took place in early March 2013.
Go on youtube and type in "how to solve pyramix".
Why are you even thinking to ask that question?
Sort of... If you get it for the right person or if they actually want one.
The layer-by-layer technique is the most common but there are also many other ones out there primarily made to increase speed. If you want to learn for the first time then i recommend the first technique.
20 is the minimum number of moves from any position, solving optimally, however speedcubers average around 50-60 moves
The best choice is Rubik's. Don't get a knock-off. You can buy a reliable 4x4 Rubik's Cube online at the website in the sources and related links(below).

9 x 6 = 54 in a standard 3x3 cube there is 26, 3x3x3=27 then -1 for the center block which is the piece that holds it together for a total of 26
Some think they're easy - I don't. The last layer is quite tricky.

just don't touch it leave it how it is or re-arrange the colourful stickers but if there ain't no stickers scrape the colours off and find ur own stickers on lol
Just follow The Rubik's Cube solution guide instructions I added in the related links section. It's a 7 steps solution for beginners. steps 4-7 walking you through the last layer solving of the Rubik's Cube. Good Luck!
  first you need to be able to solve a 3x3, 4x4, and 5x5 then solve the centers and pair them up like you do to a 5x5 then pair up the edges and after that you can solve it like a 3x3 thinking that all of the centers act as one and the paired edges act as one(just turn the most outer layer) ...
== Answer ==         43 Quintillion ..im serious too, and not meaning shaking it. I'm just specifying, the number of permutations of the cube would be 8!*12!/2*3^7*2^11 or 43,252,003,274,489,856,000. Then you subtract 1 (or the solved cube) to get 43,252,003,274,489,855,999.    ...
Well there's roughly 6.5 billion people in the world and (only  5%) of the world can slove it so that makes it only 325,000,000  people out of 6,500,000,000!   Hope this helped.i love cubes but are really hard 
it really depends on where you live. i have never really been any where else in the world. i live in new zealand so:wharehousekmarti hope that helps??????

The company Rubik's Cubes makes them, although their original creator was Erno Rubik. It must be noted that the Rubik's brand cubes are not preferred by speedcubers worldwide. There are many companies that produce speedcubes that are much cheaper than the original Rubic's Cube, yet are of a...

Im almost 100% positive that the first Rubik's cube was made of wood. Im not sure what kind but you can probaly check wikipedia for an in-depth description.
well in 1939 when they first came out they where valued at around half a penny is maybe less, which is around 50p in our day money
There is not just one sequence or algorithm, It takes lots of different steps and cn differ to what situations you get in with your cube. It is not too hard to learn how to solve one but it may take time and hard work. Some people get it faster than others.
Buy a Rubik's Cube guide to finishing. Or if your Albert Einstein, watch the pros and memorize their moves! :D (Guides are on eBay) Enjoy!If you literally mean, "How do you make (create) a Rubik's cube?" then, short of starting your own company, you can but D.I.Y kits on the Internet where you can...
  I can help get started. First, put the white centre on top. I use green for the front, red for the right, orange for the left, and blue for the back. Yellow is on the bottom. Second, mess around until you get all four white points next to the white centre, forming a cross. Do the same for...

Assuming you mean 7x7x7 rubik's cube, you generally can not buy them in stores. You can get them at: Ebay Amazon DealExtreme (type in puzzle cube) V-Cube But it would take a week or two in shipping.
There's a 20x20x20 cube on the computer, but an actual 20x20 has not been invented. The core will most likely be too complex, and the cube too large to handle. There is also a problem with getting the small cubies to be held together.
Yes, even if a piece is backwards or the completed look is "different" or odd. It CAN be completed one way or another. Even if it comes to finding mixed around pieces and physically taking them out and putting them in the right position
No.It wasn't invented until 1974.

Yes. Search on youtube
It's five times five times five. the volume is l times w times h and 5 times 5 times five equals 25.
If it's not at WallMart, then the only place you can get it is online. Most of those Rubik's products are only sold in China.
The middle squares never move so the answer is 6.

The Rubik's cube was not discovered but made or invented.Anyway it was invented by Erno Rubik in 1974
to solve it:   Get 1 and place it so the number is facing you upside-down, the get  2 and place it so the number is the right way up, in the gap. Next  rotate what you have of the cube 90º right. Then,get 3 and rotate  it 90º left from it facing the right way and slot it in at the  back....
It's all about preference. Typically, people enjoy the DaYan GuHong, ShengEn F II and the Alpha V/Haiyan Memory.
Put Petroleum Jelly inside it but not too much.You can take it apart if you are very careful and have confidence you can put it back together. You only need to take apart some of it to put some of the Pet.-Jelly. When you turn the cube it spreads it around and evens it out.
All you have to do is measure the length of it, say it's 5cm, then because it's a cube all edges and sides are the same length. So all you have to do is 5 x 5 x 5. Which is 25 x 5 (25cm being the area of one side) And then the area of the side multiplied by 5, (5 being the width this time) So in...
try to do multple sides at the same time
There is actually too many people in the world that is considered to be the fastest in the world. ----------Officially, the title for fastest single time and average for the 3x3x3 are held by Feliks Zemdegs, although many people are catching up, some people don't go to competitions, and people...
You must take out one of the edge pieces right next to it out first. You can do this by rotating it 45 degrees in any direction then getting your thumb under the edge piece and prying it out. If that doesn't work, carefully use a screwdriver or even a fork. Then put in the corner piece and pop in...

You solve a cube by layers not sides.
no it is not. but it is possible to do one side! you can not fix your rubiks cube (not fix make) in a easy way.signature; qwer
its only mechanical when you buy the one that dosent let you twist it and says speed 26 or how fast it is but the original one isent
The fastest time is 5.66 seconds, accomplished by Feliks Zemdegs of Australia.
  you download a program called cube version 1.42
six, because when you buy one it starts off with each side has one color and a cube has six sides. That's my answer but...if the rubik cube has a sticker in the middle on a side that's silver then its seven if your counting the sticker.
Vaseline does not work on rubik's cubes. Eventually it will eat the plastic. Use 100% silicone spray.
use sand paper and rub each side then assemble it You will notice it cuts corners better and it goes faster.
Pros: it looks cool, its fun to use   cons: it's sh*t if you want speed, it's a touchscreen so ur fingers  are likely to slip    summary: It's only for a bit of f*cking fun, terrible if ur  thinking abt speed.
You can get a Rubik's cube almost anywhere. You can buy them at stores like Wal-Mart and Target. Toys R Us sells them. You can also but them from one of the websites in the sources and related links (below).If you wish to buy one then you can find them in any supermarket or hobbie store
