What makes its success all the remarkable is that it didnotstart out as atoy. TheRubik's cubewas invented in 1974 by ErnoRubik, a Hungarian architect, who wanted a working model to help explain three-dimensional geometry. It was in stores for sale starting in 1980.
In 2020, the puzzle invented by Hungary's Ernő Rubik celebrates the 40th anniversary of its international launch. The original 3 x 3 x 3 format has now expanded to embrace the dodecahedron-shaped Megaminx, the Pyraminx, the Clock (a two-sided puzzle, each face featuring nine clocks to be aligned) and more.
