Erno Rubik is a Hungarian inventor and professor of architecture. He is best known for the invention of mechanical puzzles including the Rubik's Cube. Starting with blocks of wood and rubber bands, Rubik set out to create a structure which would allow the individual pieces to move without the whole structure falling apart.

Rubik made the original prototypes of his cube by hand, cutting the wood, boring the holes and using elastic bands to hold the contraption together.
