The idea of impossible bottles is to take things that could not possibly go through the mouth of a bottle and put them inside anyways. These tricks require dexterity, patience, and a great deal of lateral thinking.
Feliks Zemdegs, Australian speedcuber has set a new Rubik’s Cube world record single (not average) in the first round of the Cube for Cambodia 2018 on May 6th, 2018 Victoria, Melbourne Australia. The time was just a mere 4.22 seconds, 3 tenths of a second faster than the previous record held by Feliks Zemdegs and SeungBeom Cho (조승범) of 4.59 seconds.

Top lists with similar titles are very popular, especially on YouTube so here's our list about our favorite puzzle. We all know what the Rubik’s Cube is, and we most likely have spent countless hours trying to figure out how to solve the puzzle. Apart from that, what else do you know about it? Here, we will explore the history, its background and other amazing Facts.
Feliks Zemdegs, Australian speedcuber has tied the previous 4.59 seconds Rubik's Cube single record of SeungBeom Cho, registered less than 3 months ago. The two cubers now share the world record for the fastest solution time on an official WCA competition. They both have PLL skips, which means a lucky situation when the pieces come together when they reach the very last step of the advanced method (CFOP).
Recently, the World Cube Association Regulations Committee have made changes to the regulations that govern competitive speedcubing which have gone into effect as of the 1st of January 2018. Some of the most notable changes include puzzles with any sort of logo now illegal for blind events, competitors are now allowed to use their hands to inspect the puzzle prior to solving with their feet, and competitors now being allowed to use any “pillowed” puzzle when previously only pillowed 7x7x7 were only legal.
The free online Rubik's Cube solver was first launched on Ruwix in 2012. It used the layer by layer method and it could find the solution in approximately 130 steps. It was using the layer-by-layer method algorithm that I made a couple years ago for my Rubik Robot in the university.
We have published an article in 2016 about the World's largest order NxNxN Rubik's Cube-like twisty puzzle, the 22x22x22 cube created by corenpuzzle which exploded many times. This record was broken when the 33x33x33 cube came to live and announced today (Dec 2 2017).
The Korean SeungBeom Cho (조승범) set a new Rubik's Cube World Record in the first round of the ChicaGhosts 2017 competition on October 28, 2017 Chicago, Illinois USA. With a 4.59 seconds solution he shaved off one tenth of a second from the record of Patrick Ponce which lasted only two months. This result brings the title back to Asia after 9 years. He used a magnetic MoYu WeiLong GTS2M cube on this competition.
This record has been broken: SeungBeom Cho (4.59).
15 year old Patrick Ponce (USA) set a new Rubik's Cube Word record single with an amazing 4.69 seconds result on the second round of the Rally In The Valley 2017 Middletown, Virginia USA competition on 2nd September 2017. He managed to shave four hundredth of a second from the former record set by Feliks Zemdegs, who is still holding the average record with 5.97 seconds.
Most hobbies or sports have one competition, normally annually or biannually, that trumps the rest in terms of the competition, the stakes and the glory. We have the World Cup, the Olympic and Paralympic Games, the Winter Games and many more. Rubik’s Cube speedsolving has its own version – The World Championships. Every two years, some of the fastest speedcubers across the globe meet at one venue to compete for the World Champion title in their respective events.
