There are six different basic materials involved. They are Metal, wood, textile, rubber, plastic and stone. Different materials give people different senses, which thus enabled the blind men to play. And here we present the very example of this inspiration – The new Rubik Cube

Rubik Cube Mp3 Player
The idea is from Rubik`s cube puzzle. The only way to activate the mp3 player on is similar to playing with the Rubik`s cube puzzle, by solving each layer has a specific function such as play, pause, forward or back. And of course the only way to turn it off is by completing it. Users can now listen to the music while having fun

Pentamix.. The World’s hardest Rubik’s cube
If you really think traditional Rubik’s Cube is pretty easy, although I cannot agree with your crazy idea, you should have a look at this Rubik’s Cube. There’are 975 individual parts not including the 1,212 stickers that each had to be placed by hand. In order to create this crazy toy, its designer Jason Smith takes about 75 hours. However, the point is that how long is it to resolve a puzzle made by this Rubik’s Cube.

Pantone Rubik's Cube
Sheer genius: the Rubitone, a Rubik's Cube coded with the Pantone Color Matching System. This is the way I want to choose my next bedroom color, cycling through the possible chromatic permutations on a puzzle cube at the Home Depot paint desk.

Nothing has hit the puzzle world this hard since Rubik’s Cube in the 80’s… Sudoku is everywhere in plague proportions and we’re about to make it even more crazy with the Sudokube!
This puzzle game looks like it is going to be every bit as addictive as both the Rubik's Cube and the Sudoku puzzle! It should delight fans of either, and if you happen to be a fan of both, then the Sudokube will be like a dream come true.

LED Rubik's Cube
Back in the 80s, there was one thing that caused millions of badly-dressed people to laugh, sob and gnaw their knuckles in utter frustration. No, not Simon le Bon's dancing, the Rubik's Cube. This infuriatingly addictive multi-coloured puzzle was a true superstar back in the day, and the quest to match its coloured faces remains as challenging as ever.
But even icons need a makeover once in a while, so some bright spark has taken the basic cube concept and given it a Noughties revamp. Ladies and gentlemen, we give you the ultra-sleek Magic Cube. This electronic version of the world's greatest arthritis-inducing brain-mangler is set to become a post-millennial puzzling sensation, and it's even more compelling than the original.

3-D IQ Sphere
If you took the classic Rubik’s Cube mechanical puzzle and changed it into the shape of a ball, you’d get something that looked much like this 3-D IQ Sphere.
* Good for creative thinking & improve both your IQ & EQ * Hints: Take a Break & Retry it * Functions: decoration, brain training, home and office fun * Diameter(approx.): 70mm

Unless you’re one of those crazy Rainman-like guys who can solve a Rubik’s Cube in under a minute, then the cube has caused you some sort of frustration or grief at one point in your life. Well, this new Rubik’s Cube appears even more difficult than its predecessor.
Without colors on any side, the only leeway you get is from the varying sizes and even that will probably throw you off track. On top of that, to create even more frustration, the surrounding sides of each individual block have reflective mirrors on its surface. I’m getting angry just thinking about solving this thing.

Irregular IQ Cube
Because the whole Rubik’s Cube thing is big on Slacktivate this week we dug up another odd story to tickle your fancy. This Rubik’s Cube keeps the traditional colors but ditches the traditional shape as you begin to rotate the sides.
The Irregular IQ Cube, it is a Break-through of the Traditional IQ game that is Good Training for your Brain & EQ!! If you are still struggling with the traditional Rubik, just try this new Brain Training Cube. See whether you can make it from an 3D Irregular Geometric Item to be a Regular 3D Square Cube. (Well, we attached the Hints in the packing)
Spoiler for 10.:
The Pyraminx is a puzzle in the shape of a tetrahedron, divided into 4 axial pieces, 6 edge pieces, and 4 trivial tips. It can be twisted along its cuts to permute its pieces. The axial pieces are octahedral in shape, although this is not immediately obvious, and can only rotate around the axis they are attached to. The 6 edge pieces can be freely permuted. The trivial tips are so called because they can be twisted independently of all other pieces, making them trivial to place in solved position. Meffert also produces a similar puzzle called the Tetraminx, which is the same as the Pyraminx except that the trivial tips are removed, turning the puzzle into a truncated tetrahedron. Scrambled Pyraminx
The purpose of the Pyraminx is to scramble the colors, and then restore them to their original configuration.
The 4 trivial tips can be trivially rotated to line up with the axial piece which they are respectively attached to; and the axial pieces are also easily rotated so that their colors line up with each other. This leaves only the 6 edge pieces as a real challenge to the puzzle. They can be solved by repeatedly applying two 4-twist sequences, which are mirror-image versions of each other. These sequences permute 3 edge pieces at a time, and change their orientation differently, so that a combination of both sequences is sufficient to solve the puzzle. However, more efficient solutions (requiring a smaller total number of twists) are generally available (see below).
The twist of any axial piece is independent of the other three, as is the case with the tips. The six edges can be placed in 6!/2 positions and flipped in 25 ways, accounting for parity. Multiplying this by the 38 factor for the axial pieces gives 75,582,720 possible positions. However, setting the trivial tips to the right positions reduces the possibilities to 933,120, which is also the number of possible patterns on the Tetraminx. Setting the axial pieces as well reduces the figure to only 11,520, making this a rather simple puzzle to solve.
