In more than 30 years, I’ve never managed to solve it (bar the sneaky sticker-removal method). However, this three-year-old Chinese prodigy has mastered the way of the Cube, completing the famous challenge in a staggering 114 seconds! And she even looks a little bored.
This is why the Chinese will dominate this century.
Mind you, the Chinese girl’s effort comes nowhere near the world record for quickest Rubik’s Cube solve, which was set by 19-year-old Dutch student Erik Akkersdijk at the 2008 Czech Open (yes, they hold Opens). He took just 7.08 seconds. Now that’s a good party trick. Watch the video below.
