University Students Create The Largest Free Standing Rubik’s Cube

Ngebray.com,- An Engineering students in University of Michigan designed the world’s largest stationary, mechanically operable, solvable rubik’s cube. It weighs 1,500 LBS and works just like the orginal. Solving it is no piece of cake, either. Ryan Kuhn, one of the student said, “Professor Perkins has been here to kind of guide our thoughts and make sure that we are thinking through all the processes clearly, but definitely allows us to come up with the ideas on our own and go through the design process”.

Later on, another student added, “A group of seniors one grade ahead of us started the project as their ME 450 senior design. And when we were handed the project at the end of last year, they had built a cube but there were some issues with it. It worked really well at first but then some problems accumulated that made it impossible to turn the faces. They came up with a solution for that, and we implemented it and we think that we’ve pretty much solved that issue”.
