Chrome Cube Lab has put together a collection of experiments based on the Rubik’s Cube, and this 808 Cube is about to eat up a lot of our time in the remainder of this unremitting week. It’s basically an 808 machine in the form of a Rubik’s Cube, and it’s a lot more fun that it sounds.

Note: To rotate without shifting the pieces, click and drag anywhere outside the cube.

From Professor Ernő Rubik, inventor of the Rubik’s Cube:

The Cube was born in 1974 as a teaching tool to help me and my students better understand space and 3D. The Cube challenged us to find order in chaos. Since then, technology has made fantastic progress in bringing new possibilities to how we learn and how we tackle bewildering complexity. Chrome Cube Lab takes full advantage of that progress by encouraging curiosity and problem-solving skills—the very reason the Cube was created in the first place. I can’t wait to see people learn about three-dimensional objects through their browsers and to test the limits of what is possible when the Cube gets re-jigged using cutting edge web technologies. Cube on!
