Unveiled at the CeBIT technology fair in Hanover Germany, the TouchCube is made up of six multicoloured screens, lit from inside.
Like the classic game invented by Professor Erno Rubik, the aim of the game is to arrange each side of the cube into squares of a single colour.
Instead of twisting, players manipulate the toy by sliding their fingers along the rows of squares, with the intended movement detected by the sensitive screens.
The new cube also remembers all past moves so players can go back as many steps as they like if they fear they have gone awry. The intelligent device also has a button that baffled users can press for tips on what to do next.
The toy is currently at the prototype stage but the creators hope that it will replicate the success of the original Rubik's Cube, which become the world's fastest selling toy after it was first exported from Communist Hungary in 1980
More than 350 million have been sold worldwide and the Cube has become an icon of design, earning it a place as a permanent exhibit in New York's Museum of Modern Art.
Since 1980 Professor Rubik has released other toys and games, including a testing puzzle involving balls inside a see-through sphere called the Rubik's 360, which he unveiled last month.
No UK release date has yet been set for the TouchCube.
