On the 40th anniversary of the Cubeâ€™s invention (April 2014) the interactive Rubikâ€™s Cube Exhibition, which explores the interplay of design, engineering, mathematics, and creativity, will open at Liberty Science Center. It will remain at the Center for six months and then travel around the world to art museums, science centers, and alternative exhibit spaces for up to seven years.
The exhibition will include a working Rubikâ€™s Cube made from $2.5 million worth of diamonds; elaborate Cube artwork; Cube-solving robots; virtual reality simulations of Cubes that arenâ€™t really there; a glowing 35-foot-tall Rubikâ€™s Cube that can be manipulated by anyone with an Internet connection; and a tiny nanoscale Cube.
