An Old Favorite Is Back

If you enjoyed playing with the Rubik’s Cube, you are going to love the GoCube. It’s a high tech version of the classic with all the features you would expect in a digital unit.

GoCube recently raised a million dollars on Kickstarter. That’s no surprise considering that 350 million of the original units sold worldwide. It was invented in 1974 by Erno Rubik, a sculptor and professor in Budapest.

The new electronic unit was created by Particula, an Israel based company. GoCube looks like the original but is so much more. It features a companion app which offers the opportunity for one-on-one or multiple competitions. The app will show you how to solve certain configurations and give you different challenge levels. The Rubik Cube experts get to check their timing in order to beat past records.

All this for $69 online and $119 at retail. Fast Company did a nice job writing about the GoCube. See the project on Kickstarter.
