I like it, but one thing you could do to is make a cuting board or a table out of rubik's cubes.

That would look amazing except cost a lot.

Rubik's cubes let you make a lot of fun designs. Especially when you use multiple cubes.

I know. The only bad thing is when you mess up and can't figure out how to get it solved again!!!
