Un Cub de Rubik gegant que es pot resoldre igual que un de petit

He vist a Boing-Boing que s’ha construït un cub de rubik gegant fet d’alumini i que pesa uns 800 kg, que es pot resoldre de forma normal, però fent servir la força dels braços en lloc de la força dels dits: World’s largest Rubik’s Cube you can solve by hand:

University of Michigan mechanical engineering students have built “the world’s largest hand-solvable, stationary” Rubik’s Cube. Fashioned primarily from aluminum, it weighs 1,500 pounds but can be manipulated by one person. The puzzle is available for solving in the campus’s mechanical engineering building.

Bé, de fet sembla que n’hi ha un de més gran, però no és pas estacionari:

None of that is required by our stationary design. So to be very precise, it is the world’s largest stationary, human manipulable Rubik’s cube

Els estudiants de la Univ. Michigan van proposar aquesta idea el 2014:

The first group of students came up with the idea for the cube on Pi Day, 2014. Martin Harris, who can solve one in 43 seconds, and Samuelina Wright, who can deconstruct one and reassemble it in a solved state, were hanging out in the College of Engineering honors office. Harris was fiddling with his cube when Wright had a vision: What if they made a massive version as a nod to the central campus sculpture?

He trobat el mecanisme del Cub gegant, de fet són pòsters que corresponen al desenvolupament d’aquest model: Un tema molt atractiu, doncs!
