The Rubik's Cube is one of those relics from a bygone age of big hair and parachute pants, yet it's somehow managed to retain a kind of geek cachet. The plastic prism of pent-up youthful frustration really must possess some serious juju 'cause it's come back decades later in full-on techno rave light-show form. The Rubik's TouchCube ($150) is now solved with a swipe of its touch-sensitive surface, thus sealing the doom of those who cheated by peeling off and rearranging the colored stickers on the original toy. Not that we would ever cop to doing that, much less to being alive when it was around the first time!
