I had an idea using liquid nitrogen or any other cold liquid. If you cooled down the cube enough, then wouldn’t the atoms in the plastic also slow down? It might make the cube faster or slower depending on the results, as I have yet to test it.

I doubt it would have much effect if any, but go ahead and experiment, I hope you prove me wrong.

The amount of friction generated from turning the cube, plus the heat from just holding it would heat a cube up to a temperature where almost no noticeable effect would be present very quickly

That is true but you theoretically could create something to retain the liquid nitrogen and make it so that it slowly releases it at a time

Considering how brittle it would make the cube, I'd be more worried about it shattering than whether or not it's slower or faster

IMO, what you are trying to do is an Angstorm lube with liquid nitrogen style which will result in one-time-use cubes.

I've done one experiment with the cold liquid in those compressed air bottles used for cleaning keyboards but the cube had no problems, also Wish Lin, I'm trying to not make it one use. More like at a comp there would be a station doing this service for 2$a cube, though it would vary depending on the size of the cube. #### Wish Lin ##### Member I've done one experiment with the cold liquid in those compressed air bottles used for cleaning keyboards but the cube had no problems, also Wish Lin, I'm trying to not make it one use.

Well, go ahead then. Good luck!
