Rubik’s Cube + Lego = One Awesome Retro Toy

When the Rubik’s cube was launched in 1980 it was awarded the Best Puzzle of the year, to date it is still considered to be one of the top selling puzzles in the world. While many only aim to solve the puzzle there are others, including surface tension, who try to give it their personal touch.

Another of my childhood favourites were Lego blocks, even these days the fan following for both the Rubik’s cube and the Lego blocks is still huge. One such fan is Andreas Nortmann who has come up with this awesome fusion of both.


Take a look at his innovative idea and you will be amazed at the brains that have worked behind them. Both the creators of the Rubik’s and Lego would surely be proud of him.


Nortmann exchanged the stickers with 2X2 plates of Lego. Different colored plates for all the six sides. What you have here now is a Rubik’s cube with Lego blocks fixed all around them. You can not only solve the puzzle but also use it as a base for other creations.

The building technique being applied here is referred to as SNOT (Studs Not On Top). Since it is being applied with the Rubik’s and Lego it is termed as Rubik’s + Lego + SNOT and the result is ‘Awesome’. You simply have no other word for it.

Kudos to Nortmann for such a brilliant idea!!
