London, July 6 (ANI): After taking the world by storm with Rubik's cube, Professor Erno Rubik is back with yet another brain-teaser.

The 64-year-old Hungarian professor has come up with a puzzle called 360, which is a clear plastic ball holding six small balls of different colours.

Using the same principles applied to the Rubik's Cub, the players have to get the coloured balls from an inner sphere into matching slots on the outer sphere by shaking them through a middle sphere that has only two holes.

"It doesn't need batteries and looks as though it should be quite easy," the Telegraph quoted David Hedley Jones, senior vice president of the Rubik brand, as saying.

"But it is incredibly complicated. There are some really cunning tricks to it," he added.

Hamleys, the London toy store, has already received numerous inquiries for the 360.

It's head of sales Nigel Wheatley said: "It is our biggest item on the web. I expect thousands to be sold in days." The new game is set to go on sale next week. (ANI)
