Send Article to a Friend

Google has used HTML5 and JavaScript to create a Web version of the famous Rubik’s Cube puzzle. Educator Ernő Rubik created the cube in the 1970s to teach his students about spatial geometry, and it became a commercial hit in the 1980s. You can fully rotate and manipulate Google’s virtual cube, and there are even a number of keyboard shortcuts.favicon follow link
