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

Rubik’s Stress Cube is Unsolveable, Still Won’t Stress You Out Like a Real Rubik’s Cube
I’m not very good at figuring out Rubik’s Cubes. I did go to University with a guy who would twist and fiddle with 3×3, 4×4, even 5×5 Rubik’s Cubes, and can be done with the whole thing in a matter of a few minutes.

Rubik’s Cube Mug is Totally Unsolveable

Rubik’s Speaker: No Solving, Just Sound

Tetris Played With Rubik’s Cubes: Fun to Watch But Not to Play
The thing about stop-motion videos is that they constantly remind us how time-consuming they must have been to make. Take this video by YouTube user BananaNeil for example, where he plays a game of Tetris using the tiles of Rubik’s Cubes as pixels.

Keyboard Rubik’s Cube: Can’t Ctrl+Alt+Delete This

How quickly can you solve a Rubik’s cube? Don’t worry, it’s been a while since I’ve even attempted such a feat. I’d like to think that over the last few years my problem-solving skills have increased exponentially, and that I can tackle one in mere seconds.
