Before we begin, i just want to let you know that i provide the link to download FREE version of eBook on How to Solve Rubiks Cube in 7 steps at the end of this article. Now let's begin.
1. THE ORIGINAL NAME WAS MAGIC CUBE
In 1974, 30-year-old Ernő Rubik was a professor of architecture in Hungary when he had the idea of constructing a handheld working model that could help students understand three dimensional geometry. The first prototypes made of wood blocks and paper clips were encouraging; pairing with a toymaker in Hungary, Rubik saw his original Magic Cube get modest distribution. In 1980, when the Cube was licensed by Ideal Toy Company, developers changed the name to Rubik’s Cube; they felt “Magic Cube” invoked ideas about witchcraft. It was so popular in the 80's but not many people can solve it.
2. 43,000,000,000,000,000,000 POSSIBLE WAYS TO PROMPT A LENGHTY SERIES OF PROFANITIES
With six sides representing nine blocks of a single color—orange, yellow, green, red, white, and blue—a Rubik’s is said to hold 43 quintillion potential configurations. That’s 43,000,000,000,000,000,000 possible ways to prompt a lengthy series of profanities.
3. WILL SMITH MAY HAVE HELPED POPULARIZE IT AGAIN
While the Rubik’s Cube has always been a perennial seller, some years have been better than others. In 2006, sales experienced an uptick after the puzzle was featured in The Pursuit of Happyness: Will Smith's character is seen solving it quickly to let a potential business associate know he’s got some brain power. “That Rubik’s scene was in the trailer, and it blew up from there,” Joe Sequino, a spokesman Winning Moves, which shares Cube manufacturing in America with Hasbro, told The New York Times. “It was the perfect confluence of events, with the movie and with a new generation 27 years later getting turned on to the cube.” In 2008, sales hit a high of 15 million globally.
4. YOU’LL NEVER BEAT A ROBOT.
The fastest robot that can solve Rubiks Cube and held the guiness world record is build by Albert Beer from Germany. The Rubiks Cube can be solve by the robot in only 0.637 second..!!! less than one second. The robot was demonstrated in Munich in Germany, you can watch the video below.
5. SOME PEOPLE CAN SOLVE IT BLINDFOLDED.
If you’re not shamed enough by the sight of a pre-adolescent solving a Cube faster than you thought possible, you should try watching them do it while blindfolded. in 2016 a Seven-year-old boy Chan Hong Lik solved one by first memorizing the placement of the squares and then obscuring his vision so he can’t see the Cube in motion. It took him just over two minutes and 21 seconds to finish. The fastest time to solve a standard 3x3x3 Rubik's Cube while blindfolded is 15.50 seconds, achieved by Max Hilliard (USA) at CubingUSA Nationals 2019 in Baltimore, Maryland, USA, on 4 August 2019. Wow.. amazing
