Puzzling price tag for World’s smallest Rubik Cube

Measuring in at a mere 9.9mm and weighting in at two grams, this ultra-precision plaything is made from aluminium aluminum toy, comes with its own pedestal and small enough to sit on a 1p coin – all this for 198,00 Yen, $1,900 or about £1,480.

 “We sought to create an exact tiny reproduction of a Rubik’s Cube,” said Kensuke Tsuchiya, a University of Tokyo expert on “micro manufacturing” who appears in a promo video for the tiny cube. “Making something that was impossible until now… was fun and exciting.”

Japanese toymaker MegaHouse are taking orders now.
