    The Ideal Gift for Geeks, Gamers and Puzzle Solvers

    The Number Cube improves your ability to think logically and strategically, while improving your hand-eye coordination

    Patented, Precision Engineered Design

    A patented, precision engineered redesign of the famous Rubik's Cube, the Number Cube is available in plastic, or custom made in wood, metal alloys or precious metals.


    Design

    The Number Cube is a patented redesign of the familiar Rubik’s cube, which shows a famous number series on each of its six faces.


    Materials

    The Number Cube has been precision engineered so that it can be fabricated from many types of materials, including plastic, wood, alloys and metal.


    Solution

    To solve the Number Cube,all the faces must show the six mathematical sequences and all of the numbers must have the same orientation.


    A Fun Way to Learn Math!

    The Number Cube web site features articles written by University of Cambridge mathematicians about the history of the number series and the famous methaticians who investigated them.

    3D Logic Puzzle

    Where did you get the inspiration for your product?

    I designed the Number Cube with several ideas in mind. The first was to create a puzzle that would engage and challenge young people in a way that computer games cannot: rather than promoting swift reaction to visual stimuli, I wanted to give them a puzzle that would require them to develop their ability to reason and think ahead, rather like chess. The second was to encourage young people to learn about the magical world of number theory and, hopefully, open up the wonderful world of mathematics to them in a way that is appealing and fun. Thirdly, I designed the Number Cube as a gift. Like any gift carefully chosen, it sends the message that you care about the person you are giving it to. But, here, there is an additional point: you are telling the recipient that you think they are smart, someone whose intellect you admire, someone who you believe has great potential. That’s a potent message to send to a young person at a critical stage of their development. It also contains a challenge to them to prove that they are worthy of your estimation. Even if they can’t solve the puzzle at first, don’t be surprised if you see them pick it up again later in life: they will want to prove that they are capable of solving it. The final reason for designing the Number Cube was as a tribute to the great mathematicians whose works I have studied and learned so much from: to Fermat, Newton, Abel, Gauss, Leibniz, Lagrange, Riemann and Hilbert. Your work has made my own life, and the lives of millions of others, so much richer.

    Tell us about the best and most challenging parts of the creation process.

    The greatest challenge was to design a cube that could be fabricated, not only from plastic, but also from heavier materials, like wood and metal. Allowing for denser materials means that the design of the cube has to be precision engineered to ensure that it can withstand the torque created when the faces are twisted. We had to create complex 3D CAD models and create working protypes using 3D printing.
