Build your home using Rubik’s cubes

When we see something fun and original, we tend to think that some people either have too much time on their hands or they are the most creative minds on the planet. The thinkers at Movoto has come up with something just like that. They created an application where given the parameters of the house we want to build the program calculates how many Rubik’s cubes we need to complete our Rubik’s house. Not only am I now aware of the amount of cubes I would need, I also know  how long it would take the fastest speedcuber to build the house for me as well. I better call Felix Zemdegs to get it done extra fast.

Do you want a Rubik’s house?

Here is your chance to find it out. Check out Movoto’s app and figure out how many customized Rubik’s cubes would you want us to make for you. 🙂

Asperger’s Society of Ontario

Not long ago I have posted about 10 year old autistic boy, Max Parker who has started using the Rubik’s Cube as part of his therapy. We felt this story might have very good value to parents and teachers alike and we wanted to share it with as many people as possible. This is how we came in contact with the wonderful people at Asperger’s Society of Ontario. Those of you who live with autistic children and adults or know someone with autism can benefit from organizations like the ASO to understand the wonderful world of autistic people.

ASO and Rubik Promotions

Our story lead us to ASO and when they asked us to help, we couldn’t say no. Our journey together started thanks to Max and hopefully we are able to help others by participating in ASO’s Toronto Yonge Street 10k event that is coming up on April 21, 2013. If you’d like to help as well head on over to eventsonline.ca and put a pledge on your favorite runner. 100% of the funds raised through ASO events goes directly towards the Asperger’s Society of Ontario.

Rubik’s cubes

When ASO asked us if we can help we knew right away that the best gift would be the Rubik’s cubes. Check out the cubes we donated to ASO to give away at the event and tell us what you think of them?  We wish all participants to have a great run this weekend and don’t shy away from sharing your stories with us!

 National Geographic Channel – “The 80s. The Decade That Made us”

To promote their latest series focusing on 80s culture, National Geographic Channel hired ad agency The Corner  and also Simon Crawford, the UK Rubik’s Cube champion to create a 60 second video targeting their audience.

Simple Idea

 

“Sometimes the simple ideas are the best,” says The Corner’s Tom Ewart of the creative idea at the heart of the campaign. “Taking the ultimate 80s icon, the Rubik’s Cube and using it to tell the story of ten dramatic years that changed our world has created, we hope, something relevant and compelling.”

 

The ad for the show The 80s. The Decade That Made Us has started airing around the world already on  the National Geographic Channel.

Tell us what you think about the ad and whether you will tune in to watch the series.
