Professor Erno Rubik, who sold over 350 million Rubik’s Cubes since 1980 is set to launch a new puzzle onto the market next week.

Rubik 360The game is called the “Rubik’s 360.” The 360 is a clear plastic ball holding six small balls of different colors. Players must get the colored balls from an inner sphere into matching slots on the outer sphere by shaking them through a middle sphere that has only two holes.

The Rubik’s 360 is set to repeat the success of the maddening Cube, which became an overnight sensation almost three decades ago and remains the world’s fastest-selling toy.

“I feel that the 360 is one of the most innovative and exciting puzzles we’ve developed since the Cube — adopting elements of my original design, challenging the solver to use skill, dexterity and logic,” Rubik said in a statement.

Priced at $14.99, the 360 is set to be a big success, following in the footsteps of the cube. If you get your hands on one of these spheres let us know what you thought of it? Is it any match for the legendary cube?
