Rubik’s Cube Marvels

8 07 2007

Check out these crazy videos of various kids solving the ever-elusive Rubik’s Cube within a matter of seconds. Their hands move so friggin’ fast that it almost looks like there’s no rhyme or reason to it. Then, just before you know it, the puzzle is solved. At that age I was pulling strings and listening to round pieces of plastic “moo” at me.

It looks like there is no rhyme or reason to it, because there is no deep thought process to solving a rubiks cube. Once you have one side matched with all one color, the trick to solving the rest of it is a series of moves that is always the same. I forget how it goes but it is like turn the left side once, then the bottom part twice, etc…. It nevers changes. So it is a simple memorization process, not some sign of genius.

That may be the case, but you still have to appreciate what these kids can do in that short a time frame.
