    Résumé : A cube is a matroid over $C^n=\{-1,+1\}^n$ that contains as circuits the usual rectangles of the real affine cube packed in such a way that the usual facets and skew-facets are hyperplanes of the matroid.
    How many cubes are orientable? So far, only one: the oriented real affine cube. We review the results obtained so far concerning this question. They follow two directions:
    1) Identification of general obstructions to orientability in this class. (da Silva, EJC 30 (8), 2009, 1825-1832).
    2) (work in collaboration with E. Gioan) Identification of algebraic and geometric properties of recursive families of non-negative integer vectors defining hyperplanes of the real affine cube and the analysis of this question and of las Vergnas cube conjecture in small dimensions.
