While digitizing a Rubik’s cube would offer little more than confusion and frustration, at least it’s a one-up from Hasbro’s Lights Out. However, it is not a one-up from the original design of the Rubik’s cube, which is a classic amongst puzzle games worldwide. Rubik’s cubes were always the cheap toy you could throw around when you couldn’t solve it, but now that it’s electronic, it’s more expensive and therefore more fragile.
This is the future. So why not add credit cards into Monopoly, digital dice into Double Trouble and a digital display on to each card of Uno? I’ll tell you why: because it’s lame. Leave the classics alone, people.
