Everyone knows this famous brain teaser, the first copy of which  the Magic Cube  was assembled in 1974 by Hungarian design professor ErnĂ¶ Rubik. Today there are many versions of different sizes (2x2x2, 4x4x4...) and shapes (tetrahedron, dodecahedron...).
Recently Melinda Green made a puzzle representing in 3D a Rubik's Cube in 4D (hypercube): the 2x2x2x2.
The 2x2x2x2 is made up of sixteen cubes connected by magnets (the two left and right square faces are connected in 4D).
On each cube appear four colors belonging to four pairs (thus eight colors).
Only half a dozen canonical moves are allowed to solve the 2x2x2x2.
