This Rubik’s Cube solver is not build with the help of any toys, but just pure engineering at the University of Michigan. Watch the FischerTechnic Rubik’s Cube solver video at YouTube.com. Happy Puzzling!

Ever wondered how many different states of Rubik’s Cube are possible? Well you need a computer to record that. And you know what, you can get money for that.

Director of the Institute for Complex Scientific Software at Northeastern University in Boston, Gene Cooperman, is studying Rubik’s Cubes as a way of setting up machines to study combinatorial problems in science and operations research.
He wants to record as many different states of the Rubik’s Cube as possible, which he says will [Read More...]

During an official WCA cube marathon Zbigniew Zborowski broke the official WCA cube marathon record by solving 3,390 Rubik’s cubes within 24 hours.
The old record was 3,141 cubes, set in February 2006 by Brent Morgan. Also a group of six Polish cubers (Lukasz Cialon 3355, Adam Wojtyla 2540, Zbigniew Zborowski 3390, Artur Justynski 2162, Adrian Banas 2481 and Tadeusz Tomala 2011) solved the grand total of 15,939 cubes in 24 hours.
The full results of the Cube Marathon are available via speedcubing.com. Happy Puzzling!
