History of the Rubik's Cube
Born in Hungary in 1944
Why was the Rubik's Cube Created?
1975: Deal with Hungarian toy company was made

The God Number is 20
F = Front side of cube (facing you)
U = Upper side
L = Left side
R = Right side
D = Down side
Shortest number of moves it takes to complete the Rubik's Cube
Took a team of researchers almost 15 years
F = turn front side clockwise by 90 degrees
F' = turn front side counter-clockwise by 90 degrees
U = turn upper side clockwise by 90 degrees
U' = turn upper side counter-clockwise by 90 degrees
2U = turn upper side by 180 degrees
(clockwise or counter-clockwise...it doesn't matter)
R = turn right side clockwise by 90 degrees
(clockwise, as if you were facing it)
R' = turn right side counter-clockwise by 90 degrees
Fun Facts about the Rubik's Cube
How many different possibilities are there?
His motivation for the cube was sparked by a structural design problem.
The purpose of the Rubik's cube was to invent a cube with squares on the side that were adjustable and were able to move independently without having the entire structure fall apart.
When he later put the design together he added colours to signify where and when a square would completely be rotated. The first Rubik's cube he made was 3x3x3.
Rubik's invention got so popular by the 90s it attracted a massive following.
This following was made up of speed cubers who timed themselves solving Erno’s puzzle
Cubers were not just a following but an entire generation themselves.
