Submission + - New Rubik's puzzle released; no twisting required

PuzzleBoy writes: The first review of the Rubik's Revolution has hit the net. Although the new toy resembles a traditional Rubik's cube, it works in a totally different way, no twisting needed. That's going to cause some confusion around the office. From the article: "My first thought—and I know I won't be alone in this—was to twist it in the traditional Rubik's Cube way. Nothing doing—this cube is a Rubik's in name and basic design only. The decision to package this electronic toy inside the iconic cube seems to be a marketing one: if it didn't have the Rubik's name attached to it, would we all be talking about the toy as much as we are?" Is a light game a worthy successor to the iconic Cube of yore?
