Unsolves Rubik's Cube - The most important part in the manufacture of a Rubik's cube is designing the mold for the various pieces. A mold is a cavity carved into steel that has the inverse shape of the part that it will produce. When liquid plastic is put into the mold, it takes on the mold's shape when it cools. The creation of the mold is extremely precise. The cavity is highly polished to remove any flaws on the surface. Any flaw would be reproduced on each of the millions of pieces that the mold will produce. In the manufacture of the cube parts, a two piece mold is typically employed. During production, the two mold pieces are brought together to form the plastic part and then opened to release it. The tool includes ejector pins that release the molded parts from the tools as it opens. All the parts are molded with auto gating tools that automatically remove the parts from the sprue as it is ejected. The molds are also produced with a slight taper, called release angle, which aids in removal. Finally, when molds are designed, they are slightly bigger than the pieces that they ultimately will produce. This is because as the plastics cool, they shrink. Different plastics will have a different shrink rate, and each tool must be specifically designed for the material that will be used.

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 × 1019) possible arrangements, and only one solution.

The standard Rubik's cube has sides of about 2.2 in (5.7 cm) per square. Various other sizes have also been produced such as a 1.5 in (3.8 cm) mini cube, a 0.8 in (2 cm) key chain micro cube, and a 3.5 in (9 cm) giant cube. While the standard cube is a 3 × 3 × 3 segmentation other types have also been introduced. Some of the more interesting ones include the 2 × 2 × 2 cube, the 4 × 4 × 4 cube (called Rubik's Revenge) and the 5 × 5 × 5 cube. The shape has also been varied and puzzles in the form of a tetrahedral, a pyramid, and an octahedral are among types that were produced. The Rubik's cube also led to the development of game derivatives like the Rubik's cube puzzle and the Rub it cube eraser.

Is that Magic Cube also known as those Rubik's Cubes? If it is, then I can say that I can solve one under two minutes. Yeah, I know, too slow but, that's what I can do at the moment. I have a friend who can solve it under forty seconds and it that isn't amazing, I've heard younger participant in competitions solving those in less that twenty seconds.

Yeah, constant and constant practice.. and if your really taht determined, you might be able to participate in competitions as well and grant yourself a personal best in regards to speed cubing or solving. Your quite welcome

When I was a little child, I liked to play it. I was unable to solve th magic cube with all sides. But at that time I thought out a new trick. That is I took off the color stickers from the magic cube, and then sticked them again and all colors are the same for all sides. I love China

LOl, I had to laugh when I saw this post. I learned how to solve it when it first came out some twenty years ago (showing my age here;). It took me forever to figure it out. When I finally got it down and do it fast, I was so proud, lol. Then we went to my grandma's birthday party. My uncle said that my cousin could solve the cube and do it really fast. My cousin never was very bright so we were surprised and asked him to show us... he took a screwdriver, busted the cube pieces apart so they would all fall out (Only the middle ones are actually connected the rest plops out, at least back then). Then he proceeded to put the cube back together... well, it was one way to solve it, lol. We laughed so hard that day. And my uncle was so proud of him and so upset at the rest of us cousins for laughing. Even worse when he figured out that most of us could solve it the regular way...
