Good ideas with bad execution, or good execution of what should be bad ideas - an analysis of inferior, off-beat or malfunctioning products, and how other people's failures can help us design better stuff.
I can’t believe someone makes… Rubik’s Cube Calendars
I really can’t believe someone makes a Rubik’s Cube Calendar. But of course they do, or this post would be very empty… Twist it and turn it and form today’s date, which you already know, so you won’t forget it…
In my case, it would be like trying to paint the Forth Bridge – by the time I had worked the horrible plastic thing into the correct alignment, it would be time to start again for tomorrow’s date.
In theory, you can buy them from Etsy.com for $23, but they are again sold out (as most items in this series tend to be)… This tells me something – that they would make a good present for someone you don’t like!
Thanks to GeekSugar for this one.
PPS. Did you know that Erno Rubik, who apparently worked at the Department of Interior Design at the Academy of Applied Arts and Crafts in Budapest, invented the cube as a teaching tool to help his students understand 3D objects. So says WIkipedia.
