the new way to get frustrated

It's been 30 years since the Rubik's Cube was invented.. And now Professor Erno Rubik is back for more.

More frustration in the lives of others, that is.

He's invented the very 21st Century-esque version of his cube.. But this time, it's a sphere. [To make it more "now" and sci-fi-ish of course.]

The object of this one is to get a bunch of little balls into their coordinating mini-spheres, which are on the outside of other clear spheres, which contain a bunch of small tubes for you to maneuver the balls through.

Sound complicated? Yeah, I think so too. But would you expect anything less from the man?

Looking at the pictures, I feel like it doesn't look all that hard. Then again, this kid who does the cube in 10.5 seconds makes it look like a piece of cake, too.

One of these days I will complete the cube without removing the stickers. And then I will move onto the sphere. Or.. Maybe... I'll just call it a day with the cube.
