While I admit that this clip was running through my head the entire time I was writing this story, the truth is that the new subculture surrounding the Rubik’s Cube is actually very cool–and kind of important. In a world increasingly dependent on algorithms, it’s good to know that budding science geeks have a “toy” they can learn from. So I attended the 2012 Rubik’s Cube tournament in Las Vegas –blindfolded solving, one-handed solving, solving with your feet–and came away with this. Sadly, no Alf.
All Hail the Cube
