Ah the good old Rubik's Cube. Can you believe that it's been around for 40 years now?

To celebrate, Google has turned its home page doodle to the popular toy and has released a new, fun site called the Chrome Cube Lab for fun experiments involving the science behind the Rubik's Cube.

There are 15 fun different virtual cubes for you to play with. There are photo cubes, music cubes, light-up cubes, and so on.

Here's the official message from the Cube's creator, Erno Rubik:

“The Cube was born in 1974 as a teaching tool to help me and my students better understand space and 3D. The Cube challenged us to find order in chaos. Since then, technology has made fantastic progress in bringing new possibilities to how we learn and how we tackle bewildering complexity. Chrome Cube Lab takes full advantage of that progress by encouraging curiosity and problem-solving skills—the very reason the Cube was created in the first place. I can’t wait to see people learn about three-dimensional objects through their browsers and to test the limits of what is possible when the Cube gets re-jigged using cutting edge web technologies. Cube on!”
