This is one of the $1,900 tiny 9.9-millimeter (I lied in the title like a no-good son of a gun) Rubik’s Cubes going on sale in Japan to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the toy being sold in the country. And, I think we can all agree, what a way to celebrate. Forget the cake and party hats, it’s just tiny, ridiculously priced cubes for us!
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.
Damn, for $1,900 I’d at least expect it to be made out of dinosaur bone or moon rock. It’s just “ultra-precision metal.” Who is actually going to buy one of these? Honestly, if I were a billionaire and already owned everything else in the world and somebody told me there was a $1,900 miniature Rubik’s Cube available I’d immediately hand them $1,900 in hundreds and tell them to hold this while I light it on fire.
Keep going for one more shot of a near-solve.
Thanks to Linby, who agrees bad ideas are all around us.
