In 1974, a Hungarian professor of architecture by the name of Ernő Rubik twisted his mind enough to create a puzzle that took him weeks to solve his own self.

It was tremendously satisfying to watch this color parade.”
Today, the Internet has been buzzing with the renewed interest in the squared delight as it celebrates its 40th birthday. Google even went as far as to allow users to test their brain power with a virtual block free of charge.
