View Full Version : Rubik's Cube

At school the other day, there was a kid who could do a Rubik's Cube in under thirty seconds. I was intrigued by it. I went home and dug my Cube out from my closet and tried it out. I knew I couldn't do it by myself, so I looked up some guides on the internet. They are set pretty well, and they are easy to follow, but for some reason, it never turns out the way it planned to.

I've always wanted to solve it, but I never have. Now I'm pretty focused on it. So, I'm wondering, do any of you have Rubik's Cubes, and are you good at them? Have you solved it yet? I always thought it was almost impossible to do, but I see tons of people saying they could do it easily. I've even seen some people on YouTube complete it blindfolded.

I've always just found the premise of the Rubik's Cube to be really awesome, and I might be close to finding the answer.

Doing it blindfolded is nothing special. It's all about maths and logic. A guy who i went to college with had mild autism and could complete it in under 10 seconds.

Mathematicians even strive to find the golden number of moves to complete it. i.e. the bare minimum moves required to solve it every time (at it's most shuffled). So far they've proved that it's something like 28moves.

And I have a Rubiks Tetrahedron!
