A little while back I wrote about my new Lego toy – a Mindcuber designed by David Gilday… for this non-twisty-guy, definitely the least painful way to solve a 3*3*3 Rubik’s Cube.
David recently released a string of updates to the software (along with a version for the Educational kit) which have significantly improved the scanning speed, improved the solving algorithms and added the ability to solve directly to a number of patterns...
… so now you can instruct this little contraption to give you:
- a cube with a snake around all six sides,
- a chequerboard pattern,
- six spots,
- a cube-in-cube (my favourite) and
- a Super-Flip pattern (every single edge piece is flipped 180 degrees – the stuff of nightmares for padawans like me!).
If you’ve already got one made up, make sure you grab a copy of the new software, and if you’re considering building yourself one – it’s EVEN BETTER now!
