Rubik’s Companion Cubes: Can’t Solve These with Portals

by

Trademark and copyright issues notwithstanding, Chris Myles could have enough goodies to start a Portal trinkets and baubles business. After wowing the interwebs with his Personality Cores and Lemon Grenades, he’s back with a doubly geeky toy: Rubik’s Companion Cubes.

Chris used old Rubik’s cubes, super glue, paint, the CAD program SolidWorks, a 3D printer and Dremel tools to create the fully functional puzzle toys. Here’s the original cube in action:

Depending on how you look at it, that cube is either too hard or too easy to solve because all six faces look the same, a mistake that Chris rectified in the succeeding versions by using different color combinations for each side as well as by using different symbols.

Check out Chris’ Flickr page for more pictures of the Companion Cubes and other Portal toys. What’s next Chris? A GLaDOS Speak & Spell?
