Did anyone else notice that the Rubik's Revolution is now available?

But http://www.rubiksrevolution.com/ says that there's still 23 more days....

You notice, no websites descriptions say that it actually doesnt turn? Its shielding the truth from the wanting public! It is more like a twisty on SIMON SAYS and not a twist on the rubiks cube. And if it is a twist on the rubik's cube, its not a twisty, but a tornado or a hurricane.

New coke. thats right. coke tastes better than ever before. I tried it. i like this better.

If he likes it so much how come he doesnt take a sip of it in the commercials?

It seems that the damage (which is also financial in the long term) of the reputation of the Rubik's products, is going to be quite daunting.

In my humble opinion, it would have be much more efficient, had Rubik's marketed some of the absolutely brilliant designs we have seen in this forum.

Instead, they chose to leave behind the real puzzles and concentrate on some ridiculous toys.

It is such a shame. Even if they didn't want to use cuboids, with today's technology, and with the funding they can provide, they could have easily created a small miracle without much effort and with just a little bit of creativity. It is beyond my mind why they chose to go forward with a Franken-Simon...

I doubt it will hurt their reputation with the general public (รก la new Coke) although it's certainly been demonstrated here that the puzzle community won't like Rubik's Revolution.

Don't forget, Rubik's Revenge was a "New Coke" type marketing disaster when it was introduced because 1) it didn't look like the common guy's idea of a Rubik's cube, 2) it was too hard for the common guy to understand, and 3) the common public was watching for it. In contrast, Rubik's Revolution looks like the public's idea of a cube, isn't hard, and isn't getting much media attention.

If it succeeds, it'll probably make a few bucks and be forgotten a year later. If it fizzles, nobody will notice. (Or care.)
