    Square-1 Tutorial

    by Stefan Pochmann (11/21/07) 5,002 views

    I kept forgetting algorithms for permuting the last layer so I invented this very easy to remember method. Note I do this as the last step, after (1) getting the puzzle to cube shape, (2) solving the bottom layer, (3) solving the middle layer and (4) fixing permutation parity. It's not at all fast, but pretty much impossible to forget.

    Rubik's Master Magic Tutorial

    I got down to 4.35 seconds with this method, the unofficial world record at the time. But then Alexander Ooms improved it and then found another, even faster method. I keep this video mainly because of the singing and the ending.

    Rubik's Magic In 0.83 Seconds

    Rubik's Magic In 0.83 Seconds

    My fastest solve I got on video and timed by watching/counting the video frames one by one. Note this is *not* the way we measure in competitions. With the official competition timer my best time is 1.17 because picking up the puzzle and starting/stopping the timer takes so much extra time. I had and improved the world record a while ago but now quite a few guys are faster than me.

    Rubik's Cube In 13.53 Seconds

    Not a lucky solve (i.e., no method steps skipped) but quite fluent, resulting in an excellent time for me, slightly faster than 13.68, my best time in an official WCA competition. My best average of 100 solves is still a bit over 16 seconds, though.

    Not a lucky solve (i.e., no method steps were skipped) but very fluent, resulting in an excellent time for me (my average is about 30 seconds). Thanks again to Mitchell Stern as well as Dan and Chris Dzoan for help and motivation.

    No, of course I neither really hate the cube, nor do I love it that way. This, I guess, is a little artistic freedom.
