Cubehead – Seriously Mixed Up Cube head
For shits and giggles…
One way to pass the time somehow while you wait for your ride.
Imagine waiting 26 years! That’s how long it took builder Graham Parker. HERE is his story.
Kudos on the dedication Graham!
My fastest speed now is 54 seconds!
My current goal: 30 second solve.
So what else can you do with the Rubik cube besides solve it? The answer is “Cubeworks”.
Cube Works Studio is a Toronto-based design studio which specializes in creating large-scale art and images using only Rubik’s Cubes. Most recently, the team set a Guinness World record for creating the world’s largest Rubik’s Cube art piece – daVinci’s ‘Last Supper’ which measures over 17 feet across and over 8 feet in height. The piece, comprised of 4,050 Rubik’s Cubes is the first of it’s kind.
Cube Works Studio has recently unveiled ‘The Hand of God’, again setting a Guinness World record by using 12,090 Rubik’s Cubes. The next project for the studio is recreating the Sistine Chapel. The Hand of God is the first project’s first step. By completion, over 250,000 Rubik’s Cubes will have been used.
Here are some more of my favourite Cube Works projects:
For fast solves, new algorithms must be learned. The more algorithms memorized, the faster the solve. That and practice, practice, practice.
My favorite site for algorithms is ZenDraL.net. The algorithms are some of the ‘friendlier’ and ‘easier’ to manipulate and memorize.
I take the cube with me everywhere I go. I cube whenever I have to wait for an appointment, I cube when watching TV – I cube therefore I am!
