can someone explain to me what demographic was being targetted when the Rubik's Revolution was being made? from videos i've seen so far, it's just a bunch of button-pressing, cube-rotating hoopla. faces don't turn, it makes annoying noises, and it's pretty much the size of a professor cube from what i've heard. i just started to cringe when i saw a video of it on youtube....is there more to that so-called "puzzle" that i'm unaware of?

i did a search for a relevant thread but didn't quite come up with anything similar.

It wears the Pochmann seal of approval, so it must be good.

instead of searching rubik's revolution and getting thousands of results, try just searching revolution

Or you could learn to use the search properly. Try "Rubik's and Revolution" or select "Search for all terms" and you won't get thousands of results.

I knew I should've threatened Sven with legal action.

I do like the "revolution" for what it actually is, but I hate it for pretending to be something it isn't - a Rubik's cube or anything even remotely like it. Thus, I would not "approve" it in general, for the general public, only for people who already know the real cube and what the "revolution" actually is (I'm not saying others won't have fun with it, but I feel they'll be missing out on what the real cube offers and they might think that that thing is "the Rubik's cube", so I'd rather recommend the real thing to those people first).

So... I have no problem with Sven's videos per se, but when Techno Source asked us for permission to use it on their site, I really didn't know what to answer. On the one hand the video is really great and we did have fun with the "revolution", on the other hand I didn't want to be part of their advertising. I kept postponing the decision and ended up not answering the request.

Publicly-held companies are required by law to increase share value. This results in regurgitated products (Rubik's) and fewer employees at Burger King. (fast food industry)

Yes I'm bitter. I'm very, VERY bitter.

Good thing I plan on working at Subway :wink:

So is this thing actually fun to play with? I'm simple minded as it is, but I don't think that I would find pushing buttons interesting. It takes one hell of a video game to keep me interested, I don't think a Revolution could do it :(
