Genius Kid Solves Rubik’s Cube In Under 5 Seconds. But The Celebration Is The REAL Triumph!

Speedcubing (or speedsolving) is the practice of trying to solve a Rubik’s Cube in the shortest time possible. There are a number of speedcubing competitions that take place around the world… but this competition was especially thrilling.

The word “thrilling” might seem a bit strange to you when describing – at its very core – a puzzle-solving competition. But aside from how incredibly fast his hands can move, it’s almost hard to believe that this is even possible.

So it’s no wonder that Lucas Cube (Lucas Etter) is the latest young puzzle master to break the world record with an incredible 4.904 seconds!
