When I was younger, I remember fiddling around with Rubik’s Cubes and was reminded of that when Jason Kottke blogged about speedcubing with the Fridrich Method . I could never solve the Rubik’s Cube and my friends who knew one of the algorithms, of which there are more than fifty, used to brag about how they could solve it in such and such a time.
Well, none of them came close to the world record holder. Yu Makajima can solve a Rubik’s cube in 8.72 seconds when he has two hands:
The dude can solve it in 14.56 seconds when he has to do it one-handed:
The most amazing part is that there’s no rushing, no sense of panic as time elapses, just calm and collected twisting of the edges.
