# Rubik's Cube

## Recommended Posts

I could never solve it. Surfing the web the other day I found Rubik's Cube in 4D! (aka a hypercube), and in 5D(a hyper hyper cube). The 5D version is so completely out of my frame of reference, I'm still trying to conprehend how the faces turn in more then 3 axes. I'm amazed people have actually solved them.

I'm going to have to admit something, I can not picture a 4th physical dimension. My brain simply isn't wired for it.

4th dimension being temporal? Yes, absolutely. Physical? I can understand the concept, but simply can not picture it in my head.

click on it to see the applet. You can actually manipulate the 4D cube by clicking on the squares.

How do you pull the stickers off?

No seriously, those are ridiculous, I prefer the hands on one, when i was in nursing school i kept one on my desk and would solve it shortly before taking a test.

I used to turn one side a litle, and then pop one of the cubes out, then take the whole thing apart and put it back together. I had my whole family upset for weeks, because they thought I could complete the cube, and I told them I couldnt complete it with anyone watching. I funally cme clean, but it was funny watching everyone try even harder when they thought I could complete it. I was 6 then.

I couldn't agree with you more...the person(s) who designed this should burn in hell....bloody plonkers...
I have the 5D one on my computer, I swear, I'd have an easier time curing cancer the solving that puzzle.

Just looking at the picture of the 5D one, I wanted to cry.

For the people who actually have solved the 5D one...

I really don't have anything to say, except HFG!
