We’ve all tried our hand at solving the Rubik’s cube – sometimes successfully; most times not!
103 Breakfast’s Ian Busuttil Naudi showed the world how it’s done by solving the puzzle in just over 30 seconds.
Can you or anyone you know do better than that?
The world’s best-selling toy
Originally called the Magic Cube, the puzzle was licensed by Rubik to be sold by Ideal Toy Corporation in 1980 via businessman Tibor Laczi and Seven Towns founder Tom Kremer.
As of January 2009, 350 million cubes had been sold worldwide, making it the world’s top-selling puzzle game. Since 2003, the World Cube Association, the Rubik’s Cube’s international governing body, has organised competitions worldwide and recognises world records.
It is widely considered to be the world’s best-selling toy.
