I’m A Rubix Cube Master

Well, not really. But I can solve the Rubix cube puzzle in around 6 minutes now after studying the tutorial video for the last 3 days.

How did I master it in the last 3 days? Instead of trying to learn all the algorithms in one day, I did it via a divide and conquer process.

On the first day, I studied the algorithms for fixing the first layer of the cube. Yeah, just the first layer. Everytime I fixed the first layer of the Rubix cube, I’ll scramble it again, and fix it again. My goal on the first day was to finish the first layer under 2 minutes. One day was enough to achieve this goal. Well, at least 2 hours on that day.

The next day, I started studying the second layer algorithm. Just like what I did on the first day, everytime I fixed it, I’ll scramble it again. Anyway, I can already fix the first layer in 2 minutes, setting up for the second layer was easy. It took me around 1 hour to finally master the algorithm and another 1 hour to get to my desired speed, that is 2 minutes for the second layer.

I guess, you already know what I did on the 3rd day. Same process. And yes, I was able to achieve my goal. Now, I can solve the Rubix cube puzzle in under 6 minutes. Not as fast as the best rubix cuber out there, but fast enough to entertain some people. 🙂

Note: Never mind the spelling, it was done on purpose. Hehehe.
