Tired of the same ol' cube? Looking for a slightly more challenging option? Looking for a slightly more street-cred-enhancing option? Look no further.

Step 1: Peel those old stickers.

If you've been using your cube as much as you should be, the stickers are peeling. If not, your cube is probably significantly better than mine. The stickers were really awful, and I had to do something about it. If you wanted something easier, you could skip right to step 6 and have a black cube, but you don't want that. You want a Gold Cube.

Take it to school and be cool
lol does that say 'ninja purse'?
I guess it does...<br /> <br /> Wtf???<br />
This is a ninja purse: <a href="http://www.instructables.com/id/Clutch-purse-Leather-Naruto-Ninja-Bag-with-bone/" rel="nofollow">http://www.instructables.com/id/Clutch-purse-Leather-Naruto-Ninja-Bag-with-bone/</a>
the colors are on the wrong sides
mine wont come apart
hey....... where did you get the gold spray paint btw it looks awsome
Any hardware or hobby store should carry it - if not, try a craft store. I found the paint was not a very good solution if you still want to use the cube though, as it remains smelly and messy.
you should have spelled rubix cube in braille.
why does the blue middle cube have four dots?
it' probably the center that says rubik's
the white side is the side that is labeled "Rubik's".
While that may be true, if you remove the center white sticker, it will say Rubik's embedded in the cube. I was simply saying that the blue side on this cube must have been the white side originally, and therefore would say Rubik's on it, causing Robotrix to make 4 blue dots around the Rubik's logo so as to preserve it. :)
&nbsp;If you look closely you can faintly see it in the blue side.
have you considered putting a clear coat on these? it will make the paint last much longer (and give it a nice smooth feel)
You can also spray some quality varnish, not those whom peel out with time.<br />
&nbsp;The cool part about this is that you can use whatever colors you want<br />
to truely pimp it out, use the little stick-on gems for color instead of paint.
That's actually an incredible idea. I have another cube with no sitckers, so you might see pimpcube v.2.0 soon!
can you solve it???
so can you solve it
Yes, i can totally solve it. I use the petrus method, you can find it on google. It takes a little while to get the hang of it but i can solve the cube in under two minutes, my best time was about 1 minute.
hahaha... my best time is 1:11... and people at my school think that I'm fast! (My friends bring rubik's cubes to school all the time!)
mine is 1 minute 6 seconds. and Ditto about the school part.
Uh yeah, I do realize that my record time when I wrote the comment (about a year ago) was not actually fast. I was trying to imply that, but I suppose that my implications utterly failed. Whoops. Nice time, by the way.
My best time is 30.77 seconds... And people around here think I'm fast, but its only because its a small town. I wish I could talk to others in person to see what I'm doing wrong and how I could get faster
I really can't tell you if you are doing anything wrong, as my best time when I was cubing (kinda got bored and stopped after 200 billion or so solves) was around forty seconds. I was never really that great at cubing, and it got to a point where I couldn't really get any faster. BUT, I never learned to do "finger tricks" as they are called. Perhaps you just need to cube some more, as speed comes with practice.
sub- 30 seconds,<br /> <br /> Fridrich method 2 look oll and pll :O<br />
my friend can doit in 31 seconds
thats exactly what I thought you'd done when I saw the teaser thumnail... Jen
When my cube is worn out (difficult to turn, stickers pealed away) I might make this but I think I'll hand paint it gold (to spare the inside and make it less difficult to turn after painting) and use fake gems for the colors while we're talking about records mine is 45 seconds, average 1.05 4x4: record: 4.00.09, average last time I checked about 4.30 (last time I did 12 solves in a row, bye bye day) 5x5: record 11.25 minutes, first time it took 15 6x6: solved it today for the first time: a full hour (but I didn't learn any new algs to do it, and the last centers took me 45 minutes, as soon as I get that down the time will lower a lot)
no offense but we werent talking about records...
however you have good records...i've never even solved a rubiks cube!! :D
me nether
and yet you guys talk over the Internet. *wink* *wink*<br/>
I'm quite a bit faster now (cut in half my average and record) and also, if you don't know how to solve, check (of course) instructables, youtube or speedsolving.com (don't blindly ask questions on that forum, we have a search function)
lol i think i will just try and beat my boring non pimped out rubik's cube and when it decides that it will stop being frustrating and just solve itself i will reward it with being pimped out.
i have 3 ways to solve mine... what you can do is take a screwdriver and pull of the cubes one at a time... carefully... and the second way involves a lighter and gasoline... soak the cube in gas... and light it... there you go... it is all the same color (black)... the last way involves a lighter... and a m-1000... put the cube on top of the m-1000 and light the fuse and run... than try to find all of the pices...
im very surprised at you. YOU NEED TO DRILL A HOLE IN IT IN WHICH TO PUT THE M1000 that way, its sure to blow it apart haha
oh... i didnt think that part through... but that would help blow it up better... i was just thinking that the m1000 would have enough power to destroy it... lol...
lol i used an m1000 to blow open a pomagranite once lol
lol... you went back to the invention of the (not including the chinese ones...) grenade... just with food instead of metal...
hey... its what i do lol
and you do it well...
not exactly an ... intellectual ... set of solutions, are they? I mean a puzzle cube is really all about challenge. blowing stuff up is for safes.
well... if you get very pissed of at than you now have a way to get it finished...lol...
Rubiks cubes are so easy it takes me about 45 secconds on avarage to solve 1
no-one likes an arrogant jerk. and 45 seconds isn't even all that great.
lol whats ur time... iv gotten mine down to about 13 secconds.
