10 Creative Rubik’s Cubes

1Blind Man Rubik's Cube

This is a new twist on an old game. Why make a new version of a game when few people can master the original anyway? Regardless, this cube features six different materials that all have a very unique texture: metal, wood, textile, stone, rubber and plastic. It can be done like a regular style Rubik's cube or if you really have the guts you can bust out the blindfold and really test your skills.

2Rubik's Cube Mp3 Player

This cool idea belongs to designer Hee Yong. The only way to activate the mp3 player on is similar to playing with the Rubik`s cube puzzle, by solving each layer has a specific function such as play, pause, forward or back. And of course the only way to turn it off is by completing it. Users can now listen to the music while having fun.

3Pentamix, the world's hardest Rubik's cube

For those who think traditional Rubik's Cube is pretty easy, they should take a look at this Rubik's Cube. There are 975 individual parts not including the 1,212 stickers that each had to be placed by hand. In order to create this crazy toy, designer Jason Smith took about 75 hours of work. Now imagine how long does it take to solve it.

4Pantone Rubik's Cube

If pouring over color swatches at Home Depot leaves you overwhelmed, the Rubitone could make the process easier by helping to assess your options in a form that nerds can understand. Unlike a traditional Rubik's cube, the object here is not to solve it, but to match colors that might look good in a bedroom or living space.


For Rubik's Cube or Sudoku fans, here is a really hard puzzle novelty: Sudokube. Sudoku Cube is an extremely challenging puzzle that combines the 3-dimensional spatial relations of a Rubik's Cube and the mathematical algorithms of Sudoku. And if you happen to be a fan of both, then the Sudokube will be like a dream come true.

6LED Rubik's Cube

In this modern version of the old game, the entire digital shebang is crammed with colour-changing LEDs, so instead of manually twisting segments you press buttons to move the colours in the desired direction. Genius. But wait, there's more: the Magic Cube contains other games, including Landmine (six players take it in turn to push a button until they hit a 'landmine'), Noughts and Crosses and a Simon-style follow-my-leader challenge.

7Rubik's Ball

Despite a few exceptions, a Rubik's Cube is just that, a six colored cube. What if you were to take the Rubik's Cube, and mold it into the shape of a ball. You'd have something that looks eerily similar to the 3D IQ Sphere. The 70 mm diameter of the IQ Sphere serves as both a brain activity and a sweet piece of nerd decoration for your desk, not to mention, it's probably the only Rubik's themed puzzle which you can throw a curve ball with.

8Rubik's Cube 2.0

Without colors on any side, the only leeway you get is from the varying sizes and even that will probably throw you off track. On top of that, to create even more frustration, the surrounding sides of each individual block have reflective mirrors on its surface.

9Irregular Rubik's Cube

The Irregular IQ Cube is a break-through of the traditional IQ game! If you are still struggling with the traditional Rubik, maybe you could change to this new brain training cube. See if you can make it from a 3D irregular geometric item to be a regular 3D square cube.

10Pyraminx Rubik's Cube

The Pyraminx is a puzzle in the shape of a tetrahedron, divided into 4 axial pieces, 6 edge pieces, and 4 trivial tips. It can be twisted along its cuts to permute its pieces. The axial pieces are octahedral in shape, although this is not immediately obvious, and can only rotate around the axis they are attached to. The 6 edge pieces can be freely permuted. The trivial tips are so called because they can be twisted independently of all other pieces, making them trivial to place in solved position.

The purpose of the Pyraminx is to scramble the colors, and later to restore them to their original configuration.
