The Origin of Rubik's Cube


Above is one of my sister's collections. The Rubik's... As I'd mentioned, she collects them. As I didn't mention, she doesn't know how to solve them and she never wants to learn. roll my eyes...

Do you have any idea of Rubik's origin?

According to my research, it was invented by a lecturer named Erno Rubik in Budapest, Hungary at 1974. He taught interior design and his idea of teachings were often demonstrated through actual models made by him.

That time, Rubik was thinking of "How could the blocks move independently without falling apart?" before he started designing the structure. After few attempts, his finally found the solution which to have the blocks hold themselves together by their shape.

When the Cube was completed, Rubik demonstrated it to his students and friends to play with it. Amazingly, the Cube became famous in no time. Few years later, Rubik worked with a manufacturer to allow mass production of the cube which to be available on toy store shelves in Budapest. The cube was then being introduced to the United States and so on.
