TARDIS Cube: Doctor Rubik
March 5th, 2013
Ok, it’s not official Rubik’s-branded merch, nor is it a cube, but it’s still a TARDIS and it is a puzzle game. At the end of the day, it’s not even a very complicated puzzle, with a grid of just 2 x 2 x 4 blocks. Though when you start moving all of the pieces around, it does seem to get bigger on the inside, so it’s got that going for it.
This Tardis Cube was designed by Shapeways contributor Gus, and is available as a 3D printed model for about $51 (USD). Though it doesn’t come in color – you have to order it in white and then dye it and apply some labels yourself. Maybe someday Gus will design a full-color version, now that 3D printing tech is fully capable of doing that. On the other hand, you could use this model to make your own TARDIS in any color you’d like. How about a golden TARDIS? Or a hot pink one? You could even decorate the cubes in the colors of a traditional Rubik’s Cube.
