Super Mario Rubik's Cube

Super Mario Rubik's Cube

It’s no secret that the Rubik’s Cube is one of the most fascinating toys ever made. It may not be viewed as a toy by some people, especially if the cube is a source of frustration. (I think I can be included in that group) While some people are able to
solve the Rubik’s Cube in 20 moves, there are mortals like yours truly who just do not have what it takes to figure that nicely colored cube out.

So what do we do when faced with the prospect of idle hours and not having anything but a Rubik’s Cube (or two, or three…)? I don’t know about you, but even though I haven’t played with one in ages, I still remember peeling the stickers off as a kid. You know what happens next…rearranging the stickers so that the colors are placed properly!

This guy has come up with something way better, though. He got hold of some Rubik’s Cubes – okay, not some, but a whopping 49 – and played around with them. His goal was not to solve all cubes in record time, but instead, he decided to twist and turn the cubes in order to depict another iconic figure – Mario.

The result is easily spotted in the image above, but the fun thing is watching the time lapse video of how the “picture” was created. Take a look.

I don’t know, but the music gives the video a little bit more oomph, don’t you think? In case you are wondering, the music is Super Mario Land by reflex/m0vement. What I am wondering about, though, is how long this took in real time. Probably less time than it will take me to solve a 3x3x3 Rubik’s Cube?
