Rubik Unbound

This is yet another implementation of the classical Rubik's Cube. Now as a dashboard widget in full 3D. You should be able to figure out how it works. Twist or rotate by pointing and dragging in "natural" directions. Drag the cube with the circle in the upper left corner. Note that it's not possible to twist the middle segments. That would have interfered too much with the plain rotation.

It is based on a java-applet from Karl Hörnell, which you can download together with the source code from his page. *** Thanks for the friendly permission for using these sources. ***

My version is based on a widget plugin, for which I had to adapt many Java functions to Cocoa. Further i work with rounded sourfaces, for a more realistic 3D appearance.

Have Fun!

Thank You!

For all those, which did not transfer yet to Mac OS, I offer here still one around the factor three increased original version applet.

Press s to scramble and r to restore (while positioning the mouse cursor somewhere in the applet region).
