1x1x1 Rubik's Cube

Postby evans-rubix08912 » Thu Jan 05, 2012 12:14 am

Hi guys,

I have heard of the existence of a 1x1x1 rubik's cube... somewhere out there. I find little information online and have no idea of where to purchase it; I would sure like to try it, though. So, my questions are: How does it work?, How much does it generally cost?, and Where can I buy it?

Any information would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance. ;)

They are usually custom made, so you either make one yourself, or you buy one from ebay...if there are any.

How it works? It's a cube just like a 3x3x3 except there is only one block on each side of the cube. So one cubie in total. You ask me how to solve a single cubie?

There is no mechanism inside since there is no need for turning or moving. It is a block of hollow plastic. It works just like a cubie. It just sits there already solved and there is no point of solving it.

That's rather stupid, don't you think? There's no mechanism whatsoever; that's totally pointless, I believe.

Well, collectors might use it to expand their collection, and modifiers might make one for better experience with modifying.

^That is true, though it can't be solved, it's not useless. If it's useless why do people buy it? It's a part of a collection like a MeMyselfAndPi (Billy). Billy even has a 0x0
Rubiks cube. The 1x1 Rubiks cube can be worthy enough for Billy to make an over 3 minute tutorial on it.

I have a sqrt(-1)*sqrt(-1)*sqrt(-1) Rubik's cube. It's very imaginary.
I also have a pi*pi*pi Rubik's cube. It's very irrational.
Also, the no.1 reason for useless things would be expanding collection, i think.

The smaller is 2x2x2 cube no edge too but presence of 8 corners.

The smallest puzzle which requires at least a tiny bit of a thought would be the 1*1*2. There are only 4 permutations.
Edit: if you make it a bandaged 1*2*2 there are only 2 permutations.

O.K., maybe it's useful to expand a collection or to generally stare at in bewilderment, but it remains useful for those purposes only, and nothing else.
