A tiny but perfectly playable Rubik's Cube is on offer in Japan at the not-so-tiny price of $1900. Yuri Kageyama writes:
The cube measures just 9.9 millimeters, or O.39 inch, by 9.9 millimeters, and weighs 2 grams (less than a tenth of an ounce). It's made of "ultra-precision metal," and comes with a box for its display, according to MegaHouse Corp., a subsidiary of Tokyo-based toymaker Bandai Co. Orders began Wednesday, only by credit card.
The miniature puzzle was shown off at a party at the Hungarian Embassy in Japan thrown to celebrate 40 years of cubing; inventor Ernő Rubik is from Budapest.
