Giant Rubik’s Cube installed at U-Michigan

A giant Rubik’s Cube newly installed on the University of Michigan’s North Campus is believed to be the world’s largest hand-solvable, stationary version of the famous puzzle.

The 1,500-pound, mostly aluminum apparatus was unveiled today on the southwest corner of the second floor of the G.G. Brown Building. It was imagined, designed and built by two teams of mechanical engineering undergraduate students over the course of three years

In my opinion when you get a shout out at  Adafruit for a technical achievement project you have made it.  It was so big and complicated it took 2 senior classes to complete and install this thing.   I live near and visit Ann Arbor frequently, it is a happening place with lots of fun, technology, and medical wisdom.  My next visit will include to find out where the G.G. Brown Building is on campus and check this monster out.
