The Brown Cube is The Brown Cube

The Brown Cube is not the Rubik Cube. Anybody who thinks they are the same is … wrong.

My friend Asha, as I write this, is heading out to the bar to watch the end of the game. It would be great to join her, but I’ve got some other things going right now. But YOU can join Asha, who is a pretty remarkable person, on her blog, and see what this whole Brown Cube thing is. Keep an eye on the Brown Cube. Some day it will be a famous song or something. Sung by Asha.

Here is Asha solving the Brown Cube. I think she’s feeling a bit down that no one ever leaves comments on her blog. Go leave a comment!

    If Asha’s post, which is a deeply disturbing social commentary, was done with a green cube, it would not have been the same.

    If Asha’s post, which is a deeply disturbing social commentary…

    How do you get “deeply disturbing social commentary” from that?

    Very cool. Anyone interested in this may be interested in Rubik’s Mirror Block. It’s fundamentally no different from a regular 3×3 cube, but is far more satisfying to just twist around, unsolved.

    Quality Asian knockoffs are available for much less on the well known auction site.
