Rubik’s Cube successor Rubik’s 360 launch on Feb 5

Erno Rubik, the Hungarian professor who created the Rubik’s Cube, has created the successor to the Cube. The new toy called Rubik’s 360 is set to be unveiled at a toy fair in Germany on Feb 5. The new game hopes to once more entertain the public this time featuring six balls trapped within three transparent plastic spheres. The objective is simple and has only one solution but requires skill, dexterity and patience.

Players must get the coloured balls from an inner sphere into matching slots on the outer sphere by shaking them through a middle sphere that has only two holes. Two-time British Cube-solving champion Dan Harris from Norfolk has a review of the Rubik’s 360.
