Google always has some pretty imaginative Doodle’s for their homepage, and today’s is no different, bringing a solvable Rubik’s Cube to the companies homepage in order to celebrate its 40th birthday, playing similar to that of the original real-life version, the Doodle allows you to simply click and drag outside of the cube to rotate the cube itself, or click and drag inside the cube to twist various sections.
First created by the inventor and architect Ern? Rubik in 1974, the Rubik’s Cube first left its home country of Hungray in May 1980, and instantly become a success and is now a well-known product (in fact, if you click the load more button on our home page you will find a number of Rubik’s Cubes show up whilst loading, which is one of most favourite features on the site at the moment.)
The Doddle will be live on every Google homepage around the world until the end of May 19th, however after that you will also be able to find it in the Google Doodle archive alongside previous Google Doodles.
