The Rubik’s Cube entered our collective cultural experience 40  years ago, and then it became so much more . Quietly, slowly, we started to hear the stories. Managers started using this in boardroom meetings. Kids who solved this were regarded as a genius. To be honest, I tried it once too and I can say for me it was the frustration and fear that lurked me in. Frustration of not solving this after hundreds of hours and fear of being displaced from the position of the school geek. I wasn’t the only one. It had a mystical aura that started drawing people to itself. Soon, It became much more than just a game. It was a cultural phenomenon. There were songs written about the Rubik’s Cube, Saturday Night Live skits, T-shirts, buttons, Rubik’s Cube socks and suspenders. Today,  Its probably the only toy that both a CEO and her 9 year old son can play or work with! We bring you everything you need to know about Rubik’s cube in this wonderful infograhic.
