This Custom Rubik’s Cube Is Held Together with Magnets

 |  |  |  |  February 17, 2019


The Rubik’s Cube has been exciting and entertaining geeks for many years now. But maybe the design is due for an upgrade. That’s why puzzle expert Tom Parker has been working on a Rubik’s-inspired cube with a unique magnetic design.

Tom’s 3D-printed cube ditches the traditional rotating and sliding mechanism of the original cube, replacing it with magnets. It looks like this actually makes moving the segments a bit easier. I guess it also makes cheating easier too since you can just take each piece out and put it back the way you want. Check out the video and see for yourself how cool it is.

It comes apart in sections very nicely if you pull it. You would think it would just fall apart as you twist it, but it doesn’t. Turning seems much more fluid, so I bet this would be great for competitions. But what do I know? I’m just a dude who will never ever solve one of these things. Cool build, Tom!
