Inspired by the throwback music of our Best of the 80s Weekend to try out that old Rubik’s Cube?
Head over to the University of Michigan, and you can solve a massive Cube that weighs in at 1,500 pounds.
A group of undergraduates studying mechanical engineering figured out how to create the giant and totally operable Rubik’s Cube – and, after three years, installed it this past week on campus.
For the record, they needed to design a unique set of rollers and transfer bearings. So let’s hear it for the team, led by Samuelina Wright and Martin Harris (who can solve a Cube in 43 seconds). Check out how they did it in the above video.
