Rubik's Magic
, like Rubik's Cube, is a mechanical puzzle invented by the Hungarian sculptor and professor of architecture Ernő Rubik and first manufactured by Matchbox in the mid-1980s.

'루빅스매직'은 '루빅스큐브'와 마찬가지로 헝가리의 조각가이자 건축과교수인 에르뇌 루빅에 의해 발명되었으며, 1980년대 중반 '매치박스'에 의해 처음으로 생산된 기계퍼즐이다.

The puzzle consists of 8 black square tiles (Changed to red squares with goldish rings in 1997) arranged in a 2 × 4 rectangle; diagonal grooves on the tiles hold wires that connect them, allowing them to be folded onto each other and unfolded again in two perpendicular directions (assuming that no other connections restrict the movement) in a manner similar to a
Jacob's Ladder toy.


이 퍼즐은 2 x 4 직육면체로 배치된 8개의 검은 사각타일로 이루어져있다. 조각에 있는 diagonal grooves 는 조각을 잇는 선을 지탱하며 서로 접히거나 다시 수직 방향 (움직이지 못하게 하는 것이 없다는 가정하에) 으로 야곱의 사닥다리 장난감처럼 다시 펴게끔도 한다.


The front side of the puzzle shows, in the initial state, three separate, rainbow-coloured rings; the back side consists of a scrambled picture of three interconnected rings. The goal of the game is to fold the puzzle into a heart-like shape and unscramble the picture on the back side, thus interconnecting the rings.

퍼즐은 초기단계에서 앞면은 분리된 무지개색 고리 3개가 독립해서 각각 있고, 뒷면은 서로 연결된 고리가 흩어져있는 그림으로 구성되어있다. 이 게임의 목표는 심장모양으로 접고 뒷면은 그림을 재정돈하여 서로연결된 고리모양으로 만드는 것이다.








Numerous ways to accomplish this exist, and experienced players can transform the puzzle from its initial into the solved state in less than 2 seconds. Other challenges for Rubik's Magic include reproducing given shapes (which are often three-dimensional), sometimes with certain tiles required to be in certain positions and/or orientations.

이것을 만드는데는 수많은 방법이 존제한다 그리고 숙련된 선수들은 초기 단계에서 2초안에 정답상태로 바꿀런지도 모른다.  '루빅스 매직' 다른 과제들은 (종종 3차원에서) 주어진 면을 복제하거나, 때로는 특정한 타일의 특정한 위치 그리고/또는 상태를 요구한다.

In 1987, Rubik's Magic Master Edition was published by Matchbox; it consisted of 12 silver tiles arranged in a 2 × 6 rectangle, showing 5 interlinked rings that had to be unlinked by transforming the puzzle into a shape reminiscent of a W.

1987년에 '루빅스 매직 마스터' 판은 매치박스가 출판했는데, 그것은 2 x 6 직육면체로 배치된 12개 은타일로 되어있고 퍼즐이 W 같은모양으로 변신하면서 떨어졌었던 5개의 연결고리들은 보여준다 .

Around the same time, Matchbox also produced Rubik's Magic Create the Cube,[1] a "Level Two" version of Rubik's Magic, in which the puzzle is solved when folded into a cube with a base of two tiles, and the tile colors match at the corners of the cube.[2] It did not have as wide a release, and is rare to find.

그 즈음에 '매치박스'는 '루빅스 매직 크리에이트 더 큐브' 또한 생산한다. '루빅스 매직'의 '레벨2' 판은 퍼즐이 2 타일을 축으로 큐브를 접었을때 풀리기도 하고 그 타일 색깔들을 그 큐브구석에 맞추기도 한다. 그것은 많이 발매되지 않았고 지금은 찾기도 힘들다.


In the late 1990s, the original version of Rubik's Magic was re-released by
Oddzon, this time with yellow rings on a red background; other versions (for example, a variant of the original with silver tiles instead of black ones) were also produced, and there also was a strategy game based on Rubik's Magic.

1990년대후반에는 '루빅스매직' 원판이 '오드존'에 의해 재발매되어졌는데 빨간배경위의 노란고리를 가진 이 시점(??????), 다른 판(예를 들면, 검은타일대신 은타일을 가진 본래의 다양함(?))은 또한 생산되었고 '루빅스매직'을 기본으로 한 용병게임도 있었다.


An unlicensed 2 × 8 version was also produced, with spheres printed on its tiles instead of rings. Custom versions as large as 2 × 12 have been built using kits available from Oddzon.
타일위에 고리가 아니 구체가 프린트된 무허가 2 x 8 버전도 생산되었었다. 2 x 12 만한 고객용 버전은 '오드존'에서 사용가능한 세트로 제작되었다.

Professor Rubik holds both a
Hungarian patent (HU 1211/85, issued March 19, 1985) and a US patent (US 4,685,680, issued August 11, 1987) on the mechanism of Rubik's Magic.
루빅스 교수는 '루빅스 매직'의 구조에 대한 헝가리 특허(1985.03.19에 발행된 HU 1211/85짜리) 와 미국특허(1987.08.11에 발행된 US 4,685,680짜리) 권을 모드 가지고 있다.

A Rubik's Magic chain

It can be seen that the total number of 2 × 4 rectangles that can possibly be created using Rubik's Magic is only thirty-two; these can be created from eight distinct chains. The easiest way to classify chains is by the means of the middle tile of the puzzle's finished form (the only tile that has segments of all three rings) and the tile next to it featuring a yellow/orange ring segment (the indicator tile).

Every chain either has the middle tile on the outside (O) or the inside (I) of the chain; if it is arranged so that the indicator tile is to the right of the middle tile, then the position of the ring segment on the indicator tile can either be the upper left (UL), upper right (UR), lower left (LL) or lower right (LR) corner. The position and orientation of the remaining tiles is then determined by the middle and indicator tiles, and eight distinct chains (OUL to ILR) is obtained, although the naming convention is not standardized.

Similarly, the 2 × 4 rectangle forms of the can be categorized. Each of these forms has exactly one chain associated with it, and each chain yields four different rectangle forms, depending on the position of the edge where it is folded with regard to the middle tile. By concatenating one of the numbers 0, 1, 2 or 3 to the chain's name, depending on whether the number of tiles to the right of the middle tile before the folding edge, a categorization of the rectangle forms is obtained. The starting position, for example, is rectangle form OUR2. The cube now is rainbow and has silver rings. A game rule for this is one is you can match the silver rings and color squares, which can make it more complicated. A similar classification can also be obtained for the heart-shaped forms of the puzzle, of which 64 exist.
