Watch As This Rubik’s Cube Floats In Mid-Air While Solving Itself

Last year we were awed by the clever work of Takashi Kaburagi. He built a rubik’s cube that solves itself. The internals of this robot are cleverly designed so that it can twist and turn itself back to the solved position from the inside, leaving us with a fantastic show.

He brought it to the Bay Area Maker Faire and drew a constant crowd.

He’s appearing at the Tsukuba Mini Maker Faire and they drew our attention to his floating version!

Of course, at this point you’re probably craving some shots of those tasty internals, right? Well you’re in luck. There’s a full writeup with all the gory details you would want on  Here’s just one sample image, go to their site for the rest.


I get ridiculously excited seeing people make things. I just want to revel in the creativity I see in makers. My favorite thing in the world is sharing a maker's story. You can find me on twitter at @calebkraft
