Solving Rubik’s Cube

This is a video I just made of me solving Rubik’s Cube. The first time I got a Rubik’s Cube it took me a full week to solve it. I was addicted to the thing and spent countless hours trying to figure it out. Solving the cube requires you to do it in steps. The chances of solving it by fluke is impossible. There are simply too many possible combinations. Enjoy the video.

    Absolutley worthless dude. You go way too fast, and you need to say what you are doing.

    Stop showing off.

  2. Lol, I don’t think I ever spent the time to solve the cube completely. Seeing your video has made me want to go out and get one though.

    I think I’ll just stick to playing Madden. What’s your fastest time, John?

  4. John Chow says:

    Matt – I think my quickest time was 17 seconds.

    In highschool, three of my friends and I had it down to about 15-17 seconds between 3 different methods. We’re still working on the 4×4

    That was crazy! Someone has had some time to practice 🙂

  8. I guess you are pretty good bro..lol…No, you are really good, damn, that was fast!

    That was scarily fast! I don’t know what I’d do with myself when I’m waiting if I was able to solve the miniature one on my key ring.

  10. JoseNet says:

    OK so how many hours a week you play with the cube?

  11. micsaund says:

    In the 80’s, I just gave-up trying to solve it and took it apart to fix it.

    Much like how I took a college class with a software testing program that I found easier to reverse-engineer and hex-edit than to actually do the testing 😉

  12. anon says:

    how the hell did you do that..im speechless..

    btw ur accent isn’t as canadian as i thought 😛

  13. Don says:

    I’ve never seen it solved using that method before. I guess I’m still an amateur with the cube because currently, I solve it using one piece at a time.

  14. TJP says:

    that was incredible.

    You’re not a show off,
    You just got skills.

  15. Rich says:

    I think my best time was around 18 seconds but that was ages ago… IIRC, the last time I played with my Rubick cube was in the early 1980s;)))

  16. HMTKSteve says:

    Did you ever try the Rubick’s Revenge?

    I prefered the pyramid shaped puzzle, I could do that one in about 5 seconds.

  17. Bryan says:

    not only are you a dotcom mogul but youre also a whiz with a rubiks cube. Im thinking you’ve got a lot of time for the fun things in life. I suggest you make Rube Goldberg device. Have you seen the Human Rube Goldberg Youtube video. It was supposed to be the ending to The Jackass movie but the screwed it up. Either way it is quite entertaining.

  18. Is there anything you CAN’T do???

  19. Martin says:

    totally useless on one side but totally amazing how fast you do it on the other 🙂

  20. Nomar says:

    hmm cool 🙂 but i dont like this sort of games though 🙂

  21. John Chow says:

    HMTKSteve – Yes I have solved a Rubick’s Revenge. That one took a bit time.

    Rich From Your Home – I think the answer to that question is, “Whatever the mind can think and believe, it can achieve.”

    anon – Canadians have ascents?

  22. uncle sha says:

  23. “thanks for the tip dude
