In the show Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip Season 1 Episode 11 around 23 minutes in, Simon Stiles appears to be playing with a Rubik's Snake in the background. There are several shots of other characters with him in the background and out of focus but clearly taking interest in a blue and white strangely shaped object which seems to be a Snake.

Although it is a bit buggy/tricky to get right, the Tilted Twister features step-by-step instructions and software to make your own from a MindStorms NXT kit. I was able to make my own (with limited success though; it had problems with recognizing the colors)

The Canadian (mainly scientific and intellectual) talk show Daily Planet had a segment on speedcubing a night or 2 ago featuring (the only one that I recognized) Eric Limeback and 2 others. I only wished that they would have talked a little bit more about the different types of puzzles because I think that Rubik's Cubes are one of the few forces that can actually blow Jay Ingram's mind (he's the very intelligent host of Daily Planet, and he wrote a mind-blowing book about consciousness)

There was a commercial for a yogurt crushable cup that featured a guy holding a Rubik's Cube, but he crushes it and it explodes. The idea is that once you learn to crush with this yogurt crush cup you won't stop

The October 17 episode of Dexter had a Brainstring sitting on a coffee table. It looked out of place as it was with a scattering of infant toys.

Look what I found at the Slovenian Cuber's page:
( http://www.rubik.si/klub/ )


It looks someone has a great talent for Potoshop or some other graphic design program.

I just saw this advertisement for that new browser Rockmelt. And guess what, in the beginning there's a Gigaminx and Rubik's Cube on his desk, and at 1:20, he even mentions one of his friends is a Rubik's Cube champion.

On the First Direct advert there is a keychain cube. :D The other day there was a (terrible) magician on Daybreak who did that trick where you throw a cube in the air and then catch it solved (so obvious :roll:).

Indeed, you may have interest in the 'Minx family reunion thread. It may have been my camera taking the pictures. The first picture is taken by me from my angle, but I must have handed the camera over the table for the others.

A lot of the props used on the set of The IT Crowd were submitted or suggested by fans of the show; clearly twisty puzzle enthusiasts. On different episodes, one can spot a Rubik's Cube, a Rubik's Clock, a V-Cube 7 and a Rubik's Cube poster. The poster says "A puzzle consisting of a cube of six colours. The aim is to swivel the squares until each face of the cube shows one colour only!"

Sorry I don't have a picture, but in the new movie Tron: Legacy, you can see a rubik's cube on the one of Sam's shelves when he is still young

Tron and Rubik's cubes in one place! :D

Sorry for the HUGE bump, but i thought this was interesting :wink:

My hobbies are very diverse. They are:

-Cubing/Modding
-Shooting/Hunting
-High School Wrestling (Varsity)
-Video Games
-Lockpicking (As a hobby, not a criminal act)

Number 1 and 3 are probably the most different. Bringing only a 5x5 to wrestling camp blew their minds! :lol: Not a very stereotypical thing for a wrestler, cubing.

But I wanted to bring this to your attention:

Attachment:
downsized_0103012149.jpg
downsized_0103012149.jpg [ 25.85 KiB | Viewed 5716 times ]


This combines hobbies 1 and 2, cubing and shooting. In my guns and ammo magazine, this is an advertisement for a flashlight meant for home defense that caught my eye.

It is a flowchart showing what happens if you use a "Surefire Tactical light" rather than a "competitors"

It reads "You fumble with the complex comtrols and accidedentally activate the low-output setting" for the competitor and then shows an arrow leading to death, because you get shot by the intruder apparently because your flashlight is too complex :roll:

And under this caption is a picture of a 3x3 rubiks cube!!! They are trying to say that other flashlights are complex to use. Personnaly I think they should have showed a picture of a void petaminx or a hexaminx or a choposaurus but thats just me :wink:

I'd noticed a few Office Depot adds a while back, that used a Rubik's cube in its conclusion. I'd forgotten about them until now when I went to their website and saw the Cube by their logo: here.
I wonder why they adopted it? It's been that way for a few months now, I saw those commercials before the Holidays (I think).

This cube is interesting insofar as it is only the second one I know of that exists as an advertiser in Luxembourg. This one is even Rubik's branded and sponsored by the Luxembourg Government.

The first one was an advertiser for a tyre repair shop. It is from 1982 and the cubes they used were Taiwan clones.

In the new film 'Let Me In', Owen (Kodi Smit-McPhee) is playing with a Rubik's Cube outside in the snow when young vampire girl Abby (Chloe Moretz from the brilliant Kick-Ass movie) joins him.

In 2007 a Hut Contest was held in Luxembourg.
There was an entry beyond competition: A Rubik's Cube Hut!
The hut will be demolished this year for safety reasons.

I'm not really sure if this is the best place to post this, but I just came across this video of a magic trick involving the Rubik's Cube (not just the one where you throw it in the air to solve it :wink:). WARNING: his patter is absolutely horrible to hear if you've ever solved a cube. :shock:

"This is like mixing up a Rubik's Cube."
Really?

a new commercial for a Square gum in Israel - http://www.trand.co.il/index.php?option ... eo_id=7059

some kind of a hybridization between a Rubik's cube and a gum.
