It is amazing to see how much faster the Rubik’s cube world record of completing the cube is today compared to 1982. In 1982 it stood at 22 seconds, today it stands at a fantastic 5.55 seconds. The reason for this improved time are firstly turns of the cube are carried out by finger pushes are much quicker moves.
Secondly it is solved in much lesser moves.
Thirdly there are millions of more people worldwide who can solve the Rubik’s cube. One fifth of the world’s population has played the Rubik’s cube. There have been more than 300 million Rubik’s cube sold worldwide. Over the years the Rubik’s cube has featured in hundreds of magazines, books and movies.
