Meet the World's Largest Freestanding Rubik's Cube

WRITTEN BY: Anthony Bouchard

Whether you've mastered the Rubik's cube in near-record times or you still become frustrated while trying to solve the puzzle on your own, it's a fun challenge that most people can relate to.

Most Rubik's cubes are approximately 2.25-inches by 2.25-inches in size, and some are even available in smaller flavors, but none even come close to this one-of-a-kind 1,500-pound replica. Oh; and did we mention it's fully functional?

It's been under construction since 2014 and continues to get finalizing touches, but it's currently world's largest freestanding Rubik's cube ever built.

Residing on the campus of the University of Michigan, the massive Rubik's cube is a sight to behold and a great experience to mess around with. Unfortunately, you wouldn't be able to solve the puzzle in under 40 seconds like some can do with the handheld version because of its sheer size and weight.
