Cubicle dwellers: Artists from Seattle have super-sized the early 1980s puzzle and you can play it right from the comfort of your desk.

The big illuminated cube you'll be challenged to solve is a 26-foot-high interactive installation called "Groovik's Cube" and it is, of course, based on the popular 3D puzzle, the Rubik's Cube.

Originally created for the 2009 Burning Man festival in Nevada by Mike Tyka and Seattle-based art collective GroovLabs, this hanging sculpture is now on display at Liberty Science Center in Jersey City, N.J., as part of its "Beyond Rubik's Cube" exhibit, which celebrates the Rubik's Cube 40th anniversary.

If you're in the area, you can play with the ginormous cube in person. If you're not, you can play the game live online via webcam. Instead of fiddling with moving parts, this glowing art cube uses a complex set of LED lights that shift and change under your control.

Go ahead, give it your best shot.
