    I'm not convinced. One of the main features of the original is that it's very tactile, I can't imagine that an electronic version would give the same kind of feedback.

    And seriously, £140 for a Rubik's Cube?

    Its too expensive to hit with a hammer when you get frustrated with it. I found the fastest way for me to do the cube was to take it apart. Removing a battery just isn't as rewarding.

    I like solving a proper cube by rotating the sides and whatever - I doubt a digital one would be as fun to use.
