A new world record has been set where the Rubik’s Cube challenge is concerned, with a speedcuber beating the previous fastest time of 3.47 seconds this week.
While the average person takes around three hours to solve the confounding but fun puzzle, there are folks who could put it together in mere seconds. And Max Park now holds the record for the fastest time as he solved a 3x3x3 cube in just 3.13 seconds.
You could see this in the video right below:
The previous record had stood for over four years and was held by Yusheng Du, who got it done in the aforementioned time during the Whuhu Open in 2018.
Park, one of five Americans in the top 10 as it pertains to cube times, was seen figuring his strategy out while waiting on the go-ahead for an official attempt. He then got to work, showing incredible hand-eye coordination as he twisted his way to a record-breaking solution before slamming the cube on the table and celebrating while onlookers stared in shock.
The Rubik’s Cube has been historically difficult to solve as there are 43 quintillion possible combinations – that’s a billion billions, multiplied by 43.
It’s likely that Park’s record will stand for several years now that he’s separated himself from the rest with this amazing feat.
