3 X 3 X 1 Rubik’S Cube is Just a Wee Bit Too Easy to Solve

 |  |  |  |  |  |  |  January 30, 2009


If you thought that 7 x 7 x 7 Rubik’s Cube was a little too difficult for your tiny brain, what with its 1.95 * (10^160) permutations, have I got a deal for you.

This 3 x 3 x 1 Rubik’s Cube (aka the “Floppy Cube”) is so simple that your cat should be able to solve it – with one paw tied behind its back.

Apparently, this Japanese cube-modder figured out a way to slice up the original cube so a single layer could still pivot and work as a simplified mini-puzzle. In addition to the 1-layer cube, he’s also built a 2-layer version, which is still much easier to solve than the original.

Me, I just used to take all the stickers off and put them on the proper sides. Isn’t that a reasonable solution?
