Rubik’s Cube iPhone App Solves Your Real Cube in 20 Moves

For the 30th anniversary of the Rubik’s Cube, they’ve decided to officially take it digital, with a new iPhone app that lets you play on the phone, or even use the camera to solve your real cube.

They’ve got 2×2, 3×3, and even 5×5 cubes to play, a 3D mode that appears to require glasses, and it helps teach you to solve the cube… but the most interesting feature is that you can use your iPhone camera to solve your physical Rubik’s cube no matter how jumbled up it is.

If you don’t have an iPhone, check out our article on learning how to solve a Rubik’s Cube.

    Looks like fun. When will we get the Android version? (there are several apps for the cube, but would love the “official” one!

    Good I can solve it without an app. Not in 20 moves, but in under a minutes. Yeah, I’m so awesome.
