Speedcubing Guide Update…and Feliks Zemdegs
As I approach the final stages of the long-awaited Speed Cubing Guide, I came across this video featuring one of my favorite speed cubers, Feliks Zemdegs. Hailing from Australia, Feliks has set the bar for the speed cubing world with his lightning fast solves with a current best of 6.24 seconds at press time. You read that correctly, he has fully solved a completely scrambled cube in 6.24 seconds! Wow. His dad captured a similar moment on video and has a nifty slow-motion playback showing the artistry of the speed cubing legend-in-the-making so that every one outside of a hummingbird can follow along as he solves the cube in a blindingly fast 6.65 seconds. It’s perfectly acceptable to drool imo….because it’s practically unbelievable!
So how did he get that fast? Here’s another great vid titled the road to 6.77, a well produced video from a very proud papa following the laid back wunderkind on his quest to break World Records which he finally accomplishes with a breathtaking 6.77 second solve…..only trumped by the preceding mind-numbing time above. He also holds titles in 2×2, 4×4 and 5×5 categories, just to name a few. In the time it took you to read these few paragraphs, he’s probably broken a few more:
There will be plenty more speed cubing videos to come, I just have to stop watching them (and speed solving my own cubes) long enough so that I can get my guide done! I’m now also working on a 2×2 guide since I’ve become pretty fast at it too ;) Enjoy!
