Friends Make a Tactile Cube for the Vision Impaired

"Sasha Thomas’ family has textured dots and stickers placed around the house to help identify various appliances, railings and other items.

His father placed them in their home so he can determine how to best help his clients at the Vancouver Veterans Affairs campus, where he works as a rehab outpatient specialist for the blind.

Thomas, 18, and his friend Carson Mowrer, 17, are both big fans of solving Rubik’s Cube, and they had been talking for more than a year about ways to bring the puzzle to people with visual impairments. They decided to borrow some of the textured items from Thomas’ father and place them on a Rubik’s Cube.

“We wanted to share our hobby with people who couldn’t play before,” said Mowrer, a senior at Skyview High School."

Running and Cubing

"For ... Ranjith Vijayan the Mumbai marathon to be run on January 21 is an opportunity to break a Guinness World Record. Vijayan, who is based in Singapore, will try to solve at least 400 Rubik's Cubes of the standard three by three during his full marathon run which he aims to finish within 4 hours and 45 minutes.

DIY Rubik's Cube Table with hidden surprise

"[Nothorwitzer] built a pretty incredible Rubik’s Cube table with hidden storage. The coolest feature of this table is the way it opens. Twisting the top section of the cube causes two drawers to pop out from the sides. The further you turn the top, the more the drawers extend. As the top hits its rotational limit, the lid of the cube lifts up, revealing the entire top section is hollow."

The d’Arenberg Cube

"The idea to build the d’Arenberg Cube came to Chester Osborn in 2003.

Inspired by the complexities and puzzles of winemaking, Chester created the idea of a cube-shaped building. The striking external features include the top two stories turned askew from the rest of the building, a fallen block in the carpark, 16 rooftop umbrellas to shade the glass building from the sun, and the illusion of floating in the middle of a vineyard."

A 33 x 33 x 33 Puzzle

"Introducing the 33 x 33 x 33 Puzzle, a gargantuan, world record-breaking rubik’s cube designed by Pfennig and 3D printed in Holland. If that already sounds mind-boggling, get ready for the specs." ...

"Whereas standard rubik’s cubes feature layers that measure a couple of centimetres thick, each layer of Pfennig’s puzzle is only 4.1mm thick. If that seems thin to you, you’re not wrong. Pfennig designed these unique dimensions in order to fit the puzzle’s nefarious number of parts, which total 6,153 moveable pieces, all 3D printed. The cube’s stickers, which keep within traditional rubik’s cube colour grading, add up to a whopping 6,534. According to Pfennig, the whole thing took about 205 hours to make. And that’s not even the best part." ...
