Documentary about Rubik's Cube enthusiasts debuts at Atlantic Film Festival
HALIFAX — Remember the Rubik's Cube?
The mechanical puzzle seemed to disappear from the cultural landscape of the early 1980's faster than mullets and glam rock bands.
But, Hungarian architect Erno Rubik's brilliant creation has apparently found new life, despite being dismissed as a toy for nerds by those incapable of solving its mathematical complexities.
The rebirth is due in large part to the Internet and the posting of algorithms that allow some players to sort out the cube's colours in as little as 11 seconds.
