On the 9th episode of the 6th series of Doctor Who, the Doctor plays with an well-used Rubik's Cube. And on the 11th episode, the Doctor solves a generic cube off-camera.

On the 2014 Eurovision Song Contest, in the short section before each performance contestants constructed their nations flag using objects associated with their countries. Hungary involved Rubik's Cubes. I guess Goulash wouldn't have worked so well.

Elaped time is longer than actual time because I did a few moves at a time during breaks.

Hmm...looks like some kid on America's Got Talent got through round 1 by solving a Rubik's Cube with his feet (and normally).

I wonder if the author knows that the graphic designer used a generic television concept from iStock: 72 TV screens arranged as a cube (you can zoom in to see the details of the TV screens). As with many other incompatible book covers, it often comes down to client-designer miscommunication.

There are several puzzles featured in the movie Escape Plan from 2013 (click on the images for bigger size). On the desk there are two black-and-white Eni puzzles, a Rubik's cube, a Rubik's 360, a wooden snake cube, a Labyrinth 4D, a standard 6-piece burr and a ball-in-frame burr. On the shelves, there is a Rubik's Revolution, a Rubik's TouchCube and possibly another burr.

Skarabajo.

I am not directly posting this picture because some might consider it of an adult nature. That is due to the wording and location of the cube. The photo however does not contain anything pornographic or any obscene words.

...Yeah, I don't have one of those but I'm pretty sure that if I did, and someone handled mine like a Rubik's Cube, that would be the last time we ever saw each other. Ow.
