Completing a Rubik’s cube in under a certain amount of time was a pretty big deal back in the 80s, but nowadays we know better than to get all excited about toy cube based skills.
However, many of us still get mighty excited about the world of geeky home décor, and it doesn’t get much better than retro themes for the otherwise totally modern home.
You know what looks really retro cool when it hangs around your house? A Rubik’s cube in a beaker, bottle or any other place where it seems to be an impossible fit, that's what!
Putting a Rubik’s cube in a bottle is a much better use for that maddening puzzle, and it's a retro geek chic conversation piece that may convince some people you’re a wizard.
YouTuber Mathologer has created this instructional video that’s teaches you how to take a modern Rubik's cube apart and put it together again inside a bottle. It may not be the easiest project in the world, but the end results are purely mathe-magical!
