History of the Cube

1980 was the year that the Cube became a worldwide smash hit!

Tom Kremer, a toy specialist, had discovered (what was then known as the ‘Magic Cube’) at the Nuremberg toy fair in 1979 and saw the power and the potential of the Cube. It was through his passion and belief in the Cube that he launched it with Ernõ Rubik to the world in 1980, under the new name ‘Rubik’s Cube’, and the rest they say is history!

Check out the full history of the Rubik’s Cube, how it was invented, the rise of cubing communities, movies and TV it has featured in, and how it has become the pop culture icon that you know and love today!
