Can You Really Solve the 1×1 Rubik’s Cube?

Date: 2022-02-12 09:00:04


This Rubik’s cube is the easiest and the hardest at the same time. It’s 1×1 and the fun part about it is that it’s always in the solved state. It seems pretty plain and straightforward, but many cubers call it the hardest one to solve. How’s it possible? And what’s the point?

Here’s a tutorial for the 1×1 Rubik’s cube. This type was invented in the late 1800’s, even before the original Rubik’s Cube. The puzzle has 6 faces of different colors and you can’t solve it by making turns. You’ll have to rotate the entire thing to bring it into the solved state.
