Google Doodles are our favorite thing about the search engine's home page, and when it's an interactive Doodle — boom! — mind blown. Today's Doodle commemorates the classic logic puzzle the Rubik's Cube with a movable, playable game right on the Google home page. This year also marks the 40th anniversary since Professor Erno Rubik created the cube as a tool for students to understand space and 3D.
Built with CSS ingenuity, the Rubik's Cube appears today — May 19 — as an ode, according to Wired, to the 519 quintillion possible configurations of the cube.
The Doodle Rubik's Cube is part of a larger Chrome Labs experiment with a dozen interactive cubes to play with, as well as the source code the Google team used in this project, for you to create your own mathematical teaching tool.
If you get stuck on the Google Doodle, one Rubik's Cube enthusiast shared their cube-busting skills in the below YouTube tutorial.
