This is how you solve a Rubik’s Cube in under 2 minutes

Of all the challenges in life that would kick my ass if I attempted them, solving a Rubik’s Cube is definitely at the top of the list.

YouTuber Mike Boyd is trying to learn things as fast as humanly possible, and his recent video shows it’s not impossible to learn how to solve the legendary puzzle quickly.

His goal was to be able to solve it in under two minutes, by practicing as often as possible. After 16 hours, spread over 23 days, he finally did.

He takes us through the process of learning – and memorizing – an algorithm for solving the puzzle. That’s pretty much the only thing you need to conquer the challenge. Oh, and a lot of practice.

When you’re finished solving it, don’t think you’ve beat the Cube forever — there’s always a new challenge.
