This 14-Year-Old Kid Just Broke The Rubik’s Cube World Record

The current world record for the shortest time taken by a human to solve the Rubik’s cube is by one Lucas Etter. He broke the previous world record of 5.25 seconds by solving a 3×3 Rubik’s cube under precisely 4.904 seconds. The previous world record set earlier this year.

Here is where things get more interesting, Lucas Etter is just a 14-year-old kid, who has just managed to solve the Rubik’s Cube in the shortest time ever recorded. At the time of his birth, the world record for solving the Rubik’s Cube was 17.02 seconds. 14 years later Etter solved it at not half the time, but in a little over a quarter of that time.

Etter managed to do this feet at the River Hill Fall competition that took place in Clarksville, Maryland. The event was dubbed ‘speedcuber’ and Etter indeed lived up to that name. If you are one of those Doubting Thomases, well know that the he followed all the guidelines set for solving Rubik’s Cube competition.

In essence, Etter looked at the Rubik’s Cube before he placed his hands on it trying to solve it. The minute he set his hands on the cube, the timer started, and he took only 4.904 seconds. The World Cube Association has also certified Etter’s achievement. He managed to lower the time taken to solve the cube by human, seconds closer to the true Rubik’s Cube champions, the robots. Back in 2014, a robot made by Lego Mindstorms creation took just 3.2 seconds to solve the Rubik’s cube.
