Think Singmaster Can Solve This One?

The Rubik’s Cube was fun and difficult. The Megamix just gave me headaches. Bring it all into the 4th dimension and you’ve got a puzzle only a physicist could love. Or someone with serious OCD.

But that’s what these developers did when they created a “a fully functional 120 Cell permutation puzzle” as a freeware game for Windows that requires .Net Framework 2.0 to run.

The Magic120Cell has a staggering 2.3 x 108126 possible permutations (that’s a really, really big number!) compared to the original’s 4.3 x 1011.

The developer’s say it’s solvable but I have my doubts it’ll be done anytime soon.

If you’re looking for a 4D Rubik’s Cube (or a Rubik’s Hypercube) you might check out the Magic Cube 4D.
