A prototype of the V- CUBE™6 was first presented in the International Puzzle Party of 2005 in Helsinki, Finland. This was the first time a fully functional 3-dimensional cubic puzzle of over 5 layers was presented to the public and it was received with great enthusiasm. It was immediately perceived as a real breakthrough in the 3-D cubic puzzle games space and for that it received the 1st honourable mention during the event.
V-CUBE™ was recognized as the Top Innovative Company in Greece for 2010, by the Greek Department of Research and Technology. Both the innovative nature of our products, based on our groundbreaking patented technology, as well as the prospects for future development were taken into account for this recognition.
