Product Description

A puzzle to reflect on In the future, everyone will only wear silver foil suits with big shoulder pads. We'll all have jobs with the word "space" in front of it (Space Accountant, Space Librarian, etc) and everything will be done with holograms. And in the future, Rubik's Cubes will also be shiny and silver. We tried to suck some from the future (using our ChronoSpatial Vaccuumatron), but something went wrong. We got the cubes, but they are a little . . . well, different. Actually, they are exactly as they should be: silver and weird. While it functions just like a regular Rubik's Cube, the Rubik's Mirror Blocks Cube has different sized blocks - which means it gets very distorted very fast. Instead of puzzling out simple colors, you'll be trying to fight with geometric space, which is great fun. What is also great fun is seeing the look on the faces of others as they fiddle with your cube. Rubik's Mirror Blocks Cube - the future is here.

I would recommend this to anyone who can solve a Rubik's cube or would like to learn.

It doesn't take long to get used to, but it's still quite fun, and looks awesome when scrambled (and seems to impress even more when solved).

He has a great time with it though, so far no stickers have fallen either and he's had it couple months.

I've had this Rubik's cube for a over a year now. My brother bought it for me when it was still only available in Japan (so the box is really cool with Japanese on it). It solves like a regular Rubik's cube, so if you know the algorithms and have good spacial skills it shouldn't be too big a challenge. When people are in my room looking at my many Rubik's cubes, in all different sizes I'll start fiddling with the Rubik's mirror and it amazes them. The amount of "wow"s I've gotten over this Rubik's cube is ridiculous, especially when it's solved the same way.
I would recommend this to anyone who can solve a Rubik's cube or would like to learn.
The only con is that you need to be extra careful lining up the different axises so that it turns correctly.

I've been able to solve the original 3x3x3 cube for a while, and the bigger ones were getting a little tedious, so this was the perfect compromise. It solves just like the original, but it's pretty tricky at first. Since all the sides have exactly the same color, you have to go by the shapes and sizes of the cubies. Right after I got it, it took me about an hour to get it right (and looking back on it, I was tired, so that was probably longer than really necessary). Now I can get it done in about 3 minutes, compared to the 2 minutes it takes me with the original (and the 30 minutes it still takes me to get the 5x5x5).

As far as the construction goes, the stickers are perfect from what I can tell. It is a very sleek silver that justly gives it the "mirror" title. All my other cubes seem to inevitably have some problems with stickers so matter how well they were put on to begin with, but this one seems especially well put-together. It turns great. There's absolutely no need for any lubrication. Sometimes I've found that it almost turns TOO easily, but it's really not a problem.

Overall a great toy. It forces you to think just a little more than you were with the original 3x3x3. I'm very happy with it.

I got bored of playing around with my standard Rubik's cube, so I bought this. It's very fun to solve the puzzle spatially, opposed to the traditional color cube.

Great for someone who likes solving Rubik's cubes. Provides a challenge, but one that's doable!

This being a 3x3 rubik puzzle it is the same in essence as the original. The main difference is learning the orientation of size of piece instead of color so very nice for a change. The best part overall though has to be the look. It is amazing. I have 5 different variations of rubiks and this one ties with the 7x7 for popularity among co-workers. If you like rubiks, you should diffintely get this one. The turning on this one I should mention looks like it would be hard but the turns are pretty much self aligning and very smooth, there are no drawbacks to this puzzle at all.

This was a lot of fun! For the first 10 minutes i owed it.... It was very stiff and hard to turn at first, but then it became very loose and easy to turn. Its an okay cube.
