If you thought that kid solving a Rubik’s Cube in under 5 seconds was impressive, wait til you get a load of Ben Katz’s speedy robot, which can size up the plastic cube puzzle, and solve it in less than 1/12th of the time – 0.38 seconds to be precise.
Cube puzzle guru Tony Fisher decided to see how the insane 17x17x17 Yuxin Huang Long puzzle is put together, so he cracked it open to reveal the thousands of pieces which go into its assembly. Now it’s a whole new kind of puzzle to try and put it back together.
YouTuber RedKB shows off an insanely complex Rubik’s Cube variant, a $750 cube which will challenge just about any puzzle fanatic. The YuXin HuangLong puzzle is made from 1947 individual pieces, and we can’t imagine how much work it takes to solve once scrambled.
Tony Fisher knows a thing or two about making Rubik’s Cubes. After all, he’s the guy behind the world’s largest working cube, and has also built all kinds of complex variants. Here, he shows off a fully-functional puzzle that he made using ice. Hopefully, he’ll work out a color version.
We can’t imagine how many hours it took the guys from juggling troupe Synchronicity to create this stop-motion Super Mario Bros. tribute video, created entirely by rotating the faces of hundreds of Rubik’s Cubes. Though this isn’t exactly the first time they’ve done this.
