The magic cub history
Everyone knows the Rubik's Cube, but not everyone can solve it.The colorful brain teaser is one of the most popular toys of all time, and it dates back to the 1970s in Hungary. We spoke with the inventor of the cube, Erno Rubik, to find out how he came up with the idea.
The magic cub history
How fast can you solve a Rubik's Cube « 1,001 1,002 1,003 1,004 1,005 » if it took you longer than that then you need to wear one of these the world record for solving a classic 3x3 standard Rubik's Cube was set in March 2013 by Matt Savelle of the Netherlands in a finger cramping time of 5 point 55 seconds pervy nut not his only human or at least his fingers are he came in second at the 2013 Rubik's Cube World Championships held.
In July in Las Vegas whitch was won by Australian Felix undines with a glacier like time of 7 point 36 seconds zem Dex holds world records for the fastest average solving time .And for the 4x4 and five by five cubes how did he do it ?
The original Rubik's Cube was invented in 1974 by Hungarian sculpture and architecture instructor Erno Rubik after trying and failing to make the squares move with elastic bands rubik's solve the problem by designing 26 individual small cubes that hold themselves together by their shapes to form one three by three cube part of the secret to setting world speed cubing records involves disassembling the cube cleaning and lubricating the parts with silicone oil and
reassembling them into a blazing blur box instructions are available all over the internet but having a fast cube is less than half.
The battle of speed cubing in fact it's more like 1 43 quintillion of the battle that's the number of possible permutations of cube starting positions that's 43 with 18 zeros behind it fortunately mathematicians game theorist and puzzle enthusiasts fell in love with rubik's cube and found a number of algorithms designed to help us mere mortals solve the cube without developing rubik's wrist cube or thumb or other Rubik related repetitive strain injuries is this a work-related condition the most popular algorithm was developed in 1981 by math professor David Tsing master by following the steps he laid out in his book notes on rubik's magic cube a cube could be solved in under a minute using less than 100 moves.
In 2010 a team of researchers working with google found the gods algorithm for solving Rubik's Cube improved that the fewest possible moves for solving it the so-called gods number is 20, Oh Go
d with a greased cube in an algorithm solving looked for additional Rubik challenges the world championships held by the world cube association with recognized World Records in various categories including blindfold solving twenty three point eight seconds one hand at solving nine point forty three seconds and
deep solving 27 point 93 seconds by 2009 over 350 million rubik's cubes have been sold worldwide making it the world's top-selling puzzle games naturally variations and imitations sprang up to get a cut of the cube competition rubik's cubes as small as two by two and as large as the world record seventeen by seventeen by seventeen are available along with similar twisty puzzles in different shapes ranging from the pyraminx a tetrahedron with four triangular faces to the dodge ik + icosahedron with 20 triangular faces trying to solve a puzzle with 20 faces usually results in this face.
