Cool, Smart: The Rubik's Cube Fridge

Since its debut in 1974, the Rubik's Cube has become the unofficial (and potentially misleading) test of a person's intelligence. In fact, there are elite competitions to prove who can solve the infamously frustrating puzzle the fastest. Some showoffs have even done it blindfolded. But now there's a way the layman can appreciate the iconic toy's greatness without exerting any brain power whatsoever, thanks to the Rubik's Cube Mini Fridge.

While it clearly doesn't twist and turn like a handheld, the foot-square rig is an otherwise identical, oversized version of the Cube with enough room inside to fit nine cans of soda or beer with "a little extra room for bacon." (They know their math, too: 18 regulation size Rubik's Cubes can fit inside.)

Like any standard mini fridge, its default is to keep contents cold, however, there's also a warming setting to keep leftovers (or beers, if you're a freak), toasty.
