The puzzle appears on Google's Homepage today in honor of its 40th anniversary
Are you hitting on Google today to look up something? Then be prepared to be distracted to the maximum as you start enjoying the digital Rubik's Cube which is appearing today on Google’s homepage. The Rubik's Cube is the Google Doodle for today in celebration of the 40th anniversary of the frustrating puzzle.
At one point or another we all have tried the annoyingly difficult puzzle and even after 40 years of existence, only some people have mastered the art of knowing how to solve it every time. However, if we are thinking that this digital one is not a big deal then you are absolutely wrong because this one is just as difficult as the physical one.
One month before the anniversary, USA Today got the chance to talk with Enio Rubik, who is the inventor of the Rubik's Cube. They talked about the legacy of the puzzle which hasn’t died down even after decades.
"The Cube is full of contradictions," Rubik said. "Humans like contradictions, because that makes life interesting and enjoyable. The Cube is very simple and very complex at the same time." In the early days of its release, the puzzle had been way more difficult to solve according to Rubik. "Nowadays it's different," he said. "You can learn it, you can find lots of things on the Internet. The combined power of the mind is much stronger than individual ones."
