It seems that almost every year there is a new Rubik’s Cube. For 2009, this means the TouchCube which features touch sensor technology, a motion-detecting accelerometer and colored lights. Touching the cube will change its colors, and you can get a hint or full solve with its built-in solver. Shown at the recent NY Toy Fair, the cube is set to come out later this year with a $150.00 price. Sign up for details on their new site or grab your old one and save the bucks.

Those who can do the original cube at breakneck speed will jump at the change to challenge themselves with the new puzzle for ~$20.00, while those who still have yet to master it might want to hold off until your more talented friends are done and will lend you one.
