Solved Rubix Cube - in 16 seconds

I thought this was amazing... i would spend whole days at my Grandma's when i was young trying to solve this thing. I still never got it solved, but i suppose pulling the stickers off and putting them elsewhere wouldnt have helped! but it seemed to =)

Dare i say Broardband only?

Re: Solved Rubix Cube - in 16 seconds

its really not that hard guys when you know how. i have the book on how to do it but its different to the one i used to have when i was little so i kinda gave up relearning how to do it. can get any 1 side out though which is the basis for the whole cube.
should sit down and learn it again i think.

I used to be able to complete it in about 5 minutes as a kid after reading the book. I lost the book though and couldnt be bothered learning it again.

It looks rigged because you cant see him complete the first face side or the second/third row. I doubt the filming has been sped up but i definately think he memorised a random sequence of some kind that he simply reveresed during the filming.

Re: Solved Rubix Cube - in 16 seconds

yes.. my brother is a cube master.. There is some set pattern that you can follow and as davway said once you get one side its not too hard.. I used to flip out my friends with how he could solve the mess they put it in..

On a similar note.. anyone rember the Snake?? they rocked, i had a full size and a key ring mini but that was years ago

Yeah the snake. They were so cool. Remember making the cobra, the ball, the duck and the boat?

I had about 4 different sizes of snakes.
