I admit it, I have a bit of a fascination with the Rubik’s Cube.
Growing up, the best I could complete was two adjacent sides… then I’d just get frustrated and dis-assemble the whole thing, and just put it back together the correct way… which I felt was a far-superior way of solving it than moving the stickers around (like my cousin did). 😀
Here’s a short video clip of this year Rubik’s Cube Competition.
My favorite part is the blind-folded competition… insanely cool. 🙂
Once you’ve mastered a rubik’s cube, it’s time to move onto the 4-d version: http://www.superliminal.com/cube/applet.html
