Have you ever completely solved a Rubik's Cube (without cheating)?

Most people think the Rubik's cube is something hard to solve or something you have to be really smart to do. Here is telling you differently. You just have to remember sets of patters to move the cube and do them over and over in the correct sequence. Sorry cubers but the gig is up. It's not that hard. 😛

Under a minute and a half at the age of 12!

Anyone remember the cubix rube from space quest?

I can solve it in 45 seconds haha

Impressive. My best was a minute 12 seconds

Yep, my record is just under two minutes. ...but I forgot how to do most of the bottom. :/

When I was younger, I did it all the time and thought it rather easy; so easy, in fact, I was surprised how few indicated they had done it.

Yes, unless you count having the algorithms memorized for the last layer "cheating", but as far as I know, that's just what you do.

No that's not cheating lol. Don't worry.

3x3x3, 4x4x4 and 5x5x5. the 4x is the hardest because there are no center cubies to reference, you have to memorize where the colors are in relation to each other before you start and make sure that your 3 sided corner cubies match up properly.

Managed to figure out the algorithms. As long as you know the general strategy it's really just a matter of putting the hours in

I have a buddy who can solve it in less than 20 seconds. His record is 12.

Yes, unless you consider moving the colored stickers "cheating." I consider it "ingenious," and "a creative solution." :^D

04/04/16 9:34 pm

In pretty sure anyone who's solved it looked up the algorithms first, including myself.

You can solve it without, but it'd take most people a long time just because there'd be so many steps without. I mean obviously some people do it that way easily, but I sure as heck am not one of them, haha.

04/07/16 6:24 pm

I seriously doubt you figured out the Rubix cube without at least seeing the algorithms once. It's easy to solve once you remember it.

Did you even read my comment? I explicitly stated I did not figure it out without algorithms. I stated that it's *possible* for someone to. Obviously it had to be for someone to discover the algorithms in the first place.

Ya, in about 50 seconds. It's actually a pretty fun thing to learn how to do.

Nope, but my daughter can do it without much thought. My husband and I have watched her repeatedly to try to figure it out. She says she doesn't know how she does it, her brain just tells her what to do (it's that thinking that makes her great at math and terrible at having to explain how she got her answers).

My best time is around a minute twenty I could do better if I took the time to learn more advanced techniques but I'm to lazy for that

Takes me about 16 seconds to do it. I can also do it blindfolded to where I am handed the cube scrambled, I memorize it, put on the blindfold, and solve it. Its a really fun hobby.

Yeah, it takes me about a minute on average.

04/04/16 8:02 pm

Not even close to solving it. My little cousin can solve one in 30 seconds, he can also do it with his eyes closed. He tried to explain the formulas he uses, that just confused me more. I actually shot a slow motion video of him solving it with my iPhone just see what his hands were actually doing, they were moving too fast in real time.

I employed the Kobayashi Maru solution: I physically disassembled it and rebuilt it.

There's a formula. I learned the formula.

I have no idea how anyone could solve it without though.

They can't that's the plain truth

Somebody had to in the beginning.

They figure out the formula on their own. My daughter's 9, she doesn't know the formula and can't explain it, but she can solve it without thinking (that being said, she needs to be reminded to get dressed in the morning so...).

Korosensei Maine

Wolf it took over 20 years for the formula to be found

No. But one of my high school friends could do it every time without fail. No matter who mixed it up.

Yes. The first time took quite a while, but it is eminently doable. Just a more complex version of those one-sided kid's puzzles with the numbers and one empty square that you slide around to get into order. If you can do just one side of the cube you will eventually be able to do the whole thing. No special pattern or sequence required (although the cheat sequences are MUCH faster).

When I was young I removed the stickers and restuck them into the correct places.

Yeah, I used to love those when I was little.

04/04/16 6:21 pm

I solved my 4year old cousins one. It was foam and and had like 4 colors per side. I felt very accomplished. 😝😝

04/04/16 5:59 pm

No, but I can very easily solve one side at a time!

MachoMatt84 Climbing Mountains

Not sure if cheating but I learned the algorithms of one popular method and can solve it on demand in about a minute and a half

I don't know all the technique yet

04/04/16 5:48 pm

I can solve one in less than one minute

Not a really messed up one... I used to keep mine solved, so I could do checkerboard patterns & the like & then put it back to normal, but when it was truly messed up, I ended up removing stickers & adhering them where I needed them! 😁

04/04/16 6:00 pm

I did that...

I was good at solving a Rubik's Cube when I was in middle school.
