Be a team player with Duracell’s custom bus shelter – it will warm your hands

Our long cold winter is good for something. A custom bus shelter was setup in Montreal to promote Duracell’s new battery.

Cubestormer 3 can assemble the cube in 3.253 seconds and is faster than Cubestormer 2. By how much you ask? Over 2 seconds!
