One Rubik’s Cube-loving teen just broke the World Record for fastest completion of a 3×3 cube. The teen completed the cube in an astonishing 5.25 seconds. The feat was captured on video at an event held by the World Cube Association at the Central Bucks West High School in Doylestown, Pennsylvania.
Rubik’s Cube champion Collin Burns defeated the previous World Record by completing a 3×3 Rubik’s Cube in just 5.25 seconds. That demolishes the previously held record of 5.55 seconds. Though the record has not been officially updated, Mashable confirmed through the World Cube Association that the record had been beaten by Burns.
“Although this result has not been uploaded to the WCA database just yet, we can confirm that this is (or will be soon) the new official WCA world record for the 3x3x3 single solve category. To our best knowledge, it has been performed in an official competition, with all the rules being followed, even the scramble has been checked for its correctness.”
In the video, which was uploaded to the DGCubes YouTube account, shows Collin as he quickly defeats the cube and slams it to the mat. The teen can be seen giving the cube a quick one around before smashing the record. After the time stopped, the person recording the video begins to scream, “What the heck? A new world record!” Everyone in the crowd can then be seen rushing to Burns table to check out the time.
Other teens in the video can be seen snapping photos of the time clock reading 5.25, along with a photo of Collin holding the completed Rubik’s Cube.
What do you think of Collin Burns Rubik’s Cube time? Can you even complete a Rubik’s Cube in a day?
