The World's Most Complex Rubik's Cube Gives Us A Headache

The World's Most Complex Rubik's Cube Gives Us A Headache
 
 

If you thought it was tough solving one of those factory-made Rubik's Cubes, you don't even stand a chance with this. Standing in at nearly 1600 tiles, it's being named the world's biggest and most complex puzzle cube ever.

This puzzle, which has not yet been officiated as the world record holder, was created by Oskar van Deventer. What's even as interesting as the puzzle itself is the fact that it was all created with a 3D printer.

So, van Deventer ended up printing out each of the more than 1,500 pieces separately, then had to dye each and every one of them and finally assemble them together to get what you see above.

The creator said he had been challenged more than two years ago to create the world's most complex puzzle cube, and this is the result.

In total, it took him 10 hours to dye everything and five hours to put it all together. That's what you call dedication.

The total cost of parts was $2,000, and that doesn't include the cost of the 3D printer which van Deventer has used on other puzzle creations.

The giant cube will be put on display in New York City on February 12 at an annual games and puzzles trade show.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
