Rubik's Cube :)

90's guys&girls, do you recall this toys?
I believe most of the 90's will remember this toys-Rubik's Cube (also known as Magic Cube) which brings a lot of memories and fun in our childhood life. Basically, Rubik's Cube is a 3-D combination puzzle invented in 1974 by Hungarian sculptor and professor of architecture Ernő Rubik. Originally called the "Magic Cube", the puzzle was licensed by Rubik to be sold by Ideal Toy Corp. in 1980[3] via German businessman Tibor Laczi and Seven Towns founder Tom Kremer, and won the German Game of the Year special award for Best Puzzle that year. As of January 2009, 350 million cubes had been sold worldwide making it the world's top-selling puzzle game. It is widely considered to be the world's best-selling toy.
First of all, there are the Names of Algrothims in the cube. R=right up L=left up U=up right Ri=right down Li=left down Ui=up left F=front clockwise Fi=front counterclockwise (As we can see from the Above Image)
Furthermore, there are several benefits that can advantage the children from playing Rubik's Cube. Studies have shown that engaging in mental activity through magic cube and puzzles can help keep the mind sharp in old age. Just as regular physical exercise helps the body, regular mental exercise has benefits for the mind. Completing magic cubes, puzzles, and board games have been shown to be beneficial to the maintenance of short-term memory, eye-hand co-ordination and general concentration. Other than that, it can also improves spatial awareness, exercises the brain, demonstrates the need for practice and it represents a pure example of true learning. If the children can solve the magic cube, they can gain problem-solving skills and improve their cognitive skills.
Currently, there are more kinds of magic cubes such as in Alphabets form, Picture forms, number forms to attract different segments of customers instead of just the ordinary colour form.
Nowadays, it has become more technology where the children can played the Magic Cube games at the Internet. Unlike the 90's, we are required to buy a Rubik's Cube at the selected store instead of playing it online. As a conclusion, Rubik's Cube recall most of my memories in my childhood time. Through Rubik's Cube,I can spend most of my times with my family together as they will assist me in finding the solutions together and yet it brought a lot of fun to all of us. What about yours?
