We’ve seen a couple of Hans Andersson’s unique digital clocks in the past. Now he’s back with another intriguing design that uses servo-powered layers and colored dots to tell the time. Each layer needs just three faces to form all 10 digits. As the digits rotate into view, all we can think of was how it looks like a Rubik’s Cube.
Awesome Rubik’s Cube
G-SHOCK goes back to the ’80s with a watch inspired by the Rubik’s Cube. The limited-edition GAE-2100RC-1A has a colorful face based on the red, yellow, and blue sides of the iconic puzzle cube. It includes white and black bezels and a black strap with green and orange accents.

People with visual impairments could soon join in the fun and frustration of solving a Rubik’s Cube. Puzzle fanatic Bondarenkoyt peeled off the stickers of a standard cube, then created textured squares that could be felt with fingertips. To prove that it’s usable, he solved it blindfolded. Now someone should put this into production.
YouTuber RedKB shows off an insanely complex Rubik’s Cube variant, a $750 cube which will challenge just about any puzzle fanatic. The YuXin HuangLong puzzle is made from 1947 individual pieces, and we can’t imagine how much work it takes to solve once scrambled.
Cube puzzle guru Tony Fisher decided to see how the insane 17x17x17 Yuxin Huang Long puzzle is put together, so he cracked it open to reveal the thousands of pieces which go into its assembly. Now it’s a whole new kind of puzzle to try and put it back together.
Tony Fisher knows a thing or two about making Rubik’s Cubes. After all, he’s the guy behind the world’s largest working cube, and has also built all kinds of complex variants. Here, he shows off a fully-functional puzzle that he made using ice. Hopefully, he’ll work out a color version.
We can’t imagine how many hours it took the guys from juggling troupe Synchronicity to create this stop-motion Super Mario Bros. tribute video, created entirely by rotating the faces of hundreds of Rubik’s Cubes. Though this isn’t exactly the first time they’ve done this.
