How the Inventor of the Rubik’s Cube Cracked His Own Code (02:54)

Great Big Story · 7 months ago
Since the 1980s, the Rubik’s Cube has captivated the minds of puzzle solvers around the globe. But how did one of the world’s most addictive and prolific puzzles come to be? It all began in the beautiful city of Budapest, in the beautiful mind of Ernő Rubik, a design and architecture lecturer looking for a tactile way to teach his students about three-dimensional space. But the story’s real “twist” came when the creator had to engineer a solution to his self-made conundrum. Think you have what it takes to crack the code? Take it up with the master himself. This Great Big Story was inspired by Genesis. SUBSCRIBE: https://goo.gl/vR6Acb Got a story idea for us?

5 SIMPLE moves to EASILY solve the Rubik's Cube - Learn in 15 minutes Tutorial (16:02)

Learn how to solve the cube in 15 minutes using only 5 moves in this short step by step video. Complete notation as well as an example of 3x3 cube solving in under 2 minutes is included. Please SUBSCRIBE: http://www.youtube.com/user/VinceRocca?sub_confirmation=1 I'm trying to get to 100k subs. Quick Access Chapter Time Codes for reference: Top Cross 1:27 Top Corners 3:46 T-Letter 6:08 D L D L' D' F' D' F / D' R' D' R D F D F' Bottom Cross 9:01 F U R U' R' F' Bottom Corners 10:05 R U R' U R U U R' Side Corners 11:21 R' F R' B B R F' R' B B R R The Edges 12:41 F F U L R' F F L' R U F F If I helped you, help me and subscribe. Frequently Asked Questions FAQ 1. Where can I get a 3x3 Rubik's cube? http://amzn.to/2ryjW02 2. Why doesn't this work? It is possible your cube was dissembled and reassembled incorrectly. Reassemble it solved, then scramble it and this video will work. 3. All the bottom pieces are Red, how do I make a T letter? 6:08 Temporally preform the T-Letter algorithm (6:45) to move a bottom (Red) edge piece into any side edge. This will move that side edge piece to the bottom. 4. Why did the cube magically change in a few spots, most notably at 9:00 and 11:20? This is not done to deceive or trick you. At these points I reset the cube to its worst possible state so I could thoroughly explain the next step. This is why I do a complete solve of the cube at the end of the video. Now that my cube is solved, I have lots of time on my hands, so I make Silly Videos of my Vacations attempting to capture my wife in the perfect Bikini.

How to Solve the Rubik's cube! (universal solution) (06:58)

NathanWilson · 1 year ago
It's possible to use one simple set of moves to solve any scrambled Rubik's Cube! And it's easy to remember! Algorithm: L R2 B L' R U2 F2 L B D U2 B L' R2 B2 L' D2 U L' B2 U2 R2 B D2... psych! This video is a complete joke. 100% made up! There is no special 'trick' or lazy guys method for solving a Rubik's Cube. This video was made as a response to obnoxious people who belittle people who have worked for years to solve the cube at incredibly fast times by claiming theres just a "trick". If you have a Rubik's cube and you genuinely want to solve it then use the video I used to learn here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HsQIoPyfQzM That is a genuine Rubik's Cube tutorial that WILL teach you the beginners method to solving a Rubik's Cube.

I was in Melbourne in April 2017 and so I dropped by to have a chat with Feliks Zemdegs: the perpetual Rubik's Cube World Champion. We talk about his recent 4.73 second record-breaking solve, how solving other types of Rubiks puzzles are different (Megaminx, 4×4, 5×5 etc) and how fast he thinks the world records can get. If you want to learn speed cubing: Feliks has a website with tutorial videos! https://cubeskills.com/ Or buy yourself a speed cube. https://mathsgear.co.uk/collections/rubiks-cubes Check out Feliks’s 4.73 second solve sat next to Mats Valk. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R07JiT0PlcE He puts videos of his new records up on his channel (including his new 3×3 average record of 5.97 seconds). https://www.youtube.com/fazrulz1 His dad also has a channel! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1xa_fGG0VxU Here is the video of when I went to a cubing comp. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NzfSombRHIM And my interview with Mats Valk. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VEsFoinLHrk Current list of Rubik’s World Records: https://www.worldcubeassociation.org/results/regions.php CORRECTIONS: None yet.
