Rubik’s Cube in Minecraft

The last time we posted about Minecraft, someone had made a scientific and graphing calculator. But now someone’s made something actually useful: a Rubik’s cube!

Mastercrafter SethBling uploaded this video showing his fully-working Rubik’s cube, created entirely from standard Minecraft blocks:

James Grime, cubing hard

Numberphile filmmaker and general internet legend Brady Haran has been busy putting together a series of YouTube videos about the Rubik’s cube, with contributions from Aperiodical friends Matt Parker and James Grime. The videos also feature lots of solving clips sent in by viewers, and Aperiodical Editor triumvir and sometime maths-talker-abouter Katie Steckles (that’s me) occasionally pops in to make comments and state facts which are no longer true (a world record was broken 4 days after filming).
