playable-rubiks-cube-buildingYou might be surprised to see this particular building when strolling down the street in Linz, Austria, especially when it resembles that of a massive Rubik’s Cube. In fact, it might even lead the more imaginative among you to figure out that this is some sort of Autobot or Decepticon in disguise come to live, but in reality, this hunk of concrete has been turned into a massive Rubik’s Cube. In fact, there is a possibility that you might be handed a tiny, all-white cube which will give you the opportunity to be a public hero – that is, by manipulating the small, all-white cube in order to solve the projected Rubik’s Cube on the building itself. The added pressure of public eyes scrutinizing your every move might be too much for some, I suppose.

This is one neat idea all in all, and it so happens to be the work of artist and designer Javier Lloret. The thing is, solving a Rubik’s Cube is not all that easy if you do not have that logical mind, although there are tutorials online which would be able to let you know how to approach the problem, and with enough practice, you would also be able to solve a Rubik’s cube in your sleep. It is a good thing that whether you can solve this puzzle in public or not, the man (and woman) on the street will still be treated to a dazzling light show.
