__The commercial cube is composed of six fixed cubes, eight movable cubes on the corners and 12 movable cubes on the edges. Each cube is one of six colors. The Rubik's cube has red, yellow, blue, green, white, and orange colors. In its solved state, each color is on only one face. When the cube is rotated, the edges and corners move and the cube becomes scrambled. The challenge of the puzzle is to restore each cube to its original position. The cube is extremely challenging because there are slightly more than 43 quintillion (4.3 × 10 19 ) possible arrangements, and only one solution.__

_{Keeping white on top, turn the cube so that a different colour face is toward you. Follow the above instructions again. Repeat with the other two faces until the white cross is complete. This step is quite intuitive; you can do it for sure but it does take a little practice. Just move the white edges to their places not messing up the ones already fixed. }

*Do you remember those complicated little Rubik’s block that we would sit there trying to figure out for what seems like hours? Did any of you guys/girls ever solve them? Maybe all it takes for us to solve the “cube” would be for us to see what it’s all about. While there are many mesmerizing toys that are about to emerge into our world, today, we would like to take a close look at the Rubik’s Build It, Solve It, because we believe this is the one-way ticket to finally solving the cube!*

*Here, we're looking at the colours that aren't solved. There are 21 different cases for the top layer, but we only need a couple of algorithms to solve them all. The first thing we want to find is headlights. Only 2 of the cases don't have any headlights (one of them is if you skip this step, and the cube is already solved). For the one case without headlights, just perform the algorithm below from any angle. This is a better case because when you do the next step, the cube will be solved already.*

**Puzzle makers have been creating problems for people to solve for centuries. Some of the earliest puzzles date back to the time of the ancient Greeks and Romans. The Chinese have a ring puzzle that is thought to have been developed during the second century A.D. This was first described by Italian mathematician Girolamo Carolano (Cardan) in 1550. When the printing press was invented, complete books of mathematical and mechanical problems designed specifically for recreation were circulated. Rubiks Build It Solve It**

If you were around in the 1980’s and did not live under a rock, you had a Rubik’s cube. It was the 3D combination puzzle that had children and adults mesmerized trying to solve the impossible puzzle. We would spend hours twisting and turning the cube to figure the solution. The cube was invented by an Hungarian professor of architecture, Erno Rubik, in 1974. Although it took Erno over one month to solve his very own puzzle, it became a fad and everyone had one. Consequently, it became the world’s best selling toy ever at that time.

*Rubik’s Build It Solve It is very similar to the traditional Rubik’s cube, but with a slight twist. With this cube you get all of the tools and bit’s and pieces along with the instructions. This is all you will need in order you you to build a Rubik’s Cube of your own. Once you have fitted the cube together, an instruction booklet has been included, and it is 10-pages in length. Finally, you will learn after all these years the process of solving Rubik’s Cube. You will be shown everything from identifying the parts of the cube along with solving basic puzzles. When you buy this toy, your children will be shown a slow and steady way of using the cube. They will then progress further with the toy to learn even harder challenges.*

__Since the center pieces cannot be moved relatively to each other it's important to solve the edge pieces correctly in relation to each other. For example, when solving the white in our case- the green center piece is to the left of the red center piece, therefore the green-white edge piece should to be solved to the left of the red-white edge piece (see image).__

_{The Rubik’s cube has recently begun making a comeback. Invented in 1974, it is the world’s best-selling toy. But solving them takes thought, effort, and skill . . . so why not let a robot do it? In this project, we take a Raspberry Pi, a BrickPi, and a set of LEGO Mindstorms and build a Rubik’s cube solving robot. Simply place an unsolved Rubik’s cube in the solver, run the python program, and your Rubik’s cube is solved! }

**The individual pieces that make up the Rubik's cube are typically produced from plastic. Plastics are high molecular weight materials that can be produced through various chemical reactions called polymerization. Most of the plastics used in a Rubik's cube are thermoplastics. These compounds are rigid, durable, and can be permanently molded into various shapes. The plastics used in the Rubik's cube are acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS) and nylon. Other plastics that might be used include polypropylene (PP), high impact polystyrene (HIPS), and high density polyethylene (HDPE).**

Even in the manual it states that you will need to practice using trial and error. Personally, we have a feeling that people who like doing puzzles and working things out will enjoy this more. It is important that you have patience when it comes to building the Rubik’s Build It Solve It cube. However, once you get the hang of this you are going to feel pretty smart. And your friends will be really impressed because it takes a bit of effort to solve one of these cubes. If you would like to read our review on the d-fantix cyclone 3×3 – please click on the link.
