Rubik's Cube
« on: March 25, 2010, 05:52:38 pm »
Hello.
I am just curious if anyone on this forum can solve Rubik's Cubes.  I can solve a 3x3 in about 30 seconds, a 4x4 in about 10 minutes, and a 5x5 in little under 30 minutes.  I looked up how to solve the 3x3 and figured the others out on my own.

I think tatsu does. I myself don't, though. I also suck at many puzzles x.x

We are discussing it on #cemetech and apparently KermM and Brandon Wilson can solve em.

In an afternoon I tried to solve a Rubik but got stuck in the last phase.
I just saw a quick Youtube video with a technique requiring few memorization, just needed some intelligence, I watched 1 week before and I spent the whole afternoon learning the "tricks" while watching tv. Well the last steps are the hardest to learn.

But I intend to learn quicker ways someday. Solving in less than a minute will be my objective.

I tend to be careful with Youtube vids, though, because some people just speed up the video of film themselves after solving the rubik cube, then once it's all scrambled again, they edit the video so it plays backwards, claiming they solved a rubik cube in 10 seconds. Some looks more real than others, though

I heard of 100x100x100... Sounds cool to solve.

I finally cleared my sig after 4 years you're happy now?

I can solve a 3x3 in 1:30 and a 5x5 in about 15. I used to know how to do a 4x4, but i haven't played with one in forever. :P  The largest i've heard of actually being made is an 8x8, so the 100x100 would probably be virtual, and that would probably take months to solve.  Also, notice the cube in my sig. :)

Ahh, yes.  I did not notice the cube.

The 100x100x100 one is indeed virtual and needs an AI to solve.

Of course, check YouTube for more info.

I have no idea what my fastest time is or even what my average is anymore but i can solve a 3x3, i tried 4x4 but i was unable to fix parity without using algorithms so i gave up on it :C

Someone should design a calc program with a bunch of solving algorithms.

I wonder what,s the largest real rubik cube ever (non-virtual)?
