Spherical Rubiks CubeSo there may be a few readers out there who can actually solve a Rubik’s cube. I for one am not one of them.

As a kid growing up I always had one, and the only way I knew how to solve it was to disassemble it and put it back together the right way – not exactly a challenge.

I have recently seen some videos online that show how to solve the cube with fancy algorithms etc, but I must say, even after watching a couple of them I still don’t get it. I guess I just don’t have the right brain for it – fair enough.

Now there is a new spherical version that is about to be released this summer. I wonder if it will have the staying power and develop the cult following of its predecessor. One things for sure, I will probably at some point own one, and I will also probably never be able to solve it.
