How fast can you solve a Rubik’s cube?

This is how fast Feliks Zemdegs can.

The above animations are realtime representations of Feliks Zemdegs’ fastest solves – to date – of a 3x3x3 Rubik’s cube. The first one is in 4.22 seconds, as it was registered on the Cube for Cambodia 2018 competition, held in Melbourne, Australia on May 6, 2018. It was a new world record. The second one is 4.73 seconds, as it was registered on the POPS Open 2016 competition, held in Melbourne Australia on December 11, 2016. At the time, that was also a new world record.

Albeit the different moves have been evenly spread during the 4.22 and 4.73 seconds of time, one can appreciate the difficulty of the task and, by slowing down the animation, closely study the different moves.
