57 Rubik's Cube Creations

From Puzzling Piggy Banks to Brain Game Artistry

— February 3, 2011 — Life-Stages
The Rubik’s Cube has truly stood the test of time. The 3D puzzle was invented in 1974 and has since seen many interpretations and reinventions.

The design for this old-school item has appeared in everything from handbags to electronics and interior design. This collection showcases the many modern innovations and tributes to the Rubik’s Cube.

Implications - The recession and credit crunch that ensued prevented many families from indulging on the latest tech toys, and traditional forms of entertainment like board games and analog toys experienced a resurgence. Artists, product designers and other creatives also reworked these nostalgic toys into all-new forms, some of which aren't meant to be played at all.
