Quick thinking: Rubik’s Cube gets solved in less than 5 seconds
Five seconds isn’t a long time.
Simple things can be done in less than five seconds, like taking a bite of food, signing your name, or giving a friend a greeting. But being able to even make a rational thought often takes longer.
Someone who just set the world record for solving a Rubik’s Cube in the shortest amount of time didn’t even need five seconds.
He looked at the cube, somehow contorted his fingers to fly through the puzzle while solving it at the same time, and finished it in 4.73 seconds.
Just solving a Rubik’s Cube is a very hard thing to do, so this record might never be broken.
