WATCH: Kid Sets Rubik's Cube World Record and It's Mesmerizing
For some, the Rubik's Cube is a challenge. But not for Feliks Zemdegs from Australia. The 22-year-old just set a lightning-fast world record of 4.22 seconds, beating the previous record of 4.59 seconds set last year by SeungBeom Cho of South Korea.
To illustrate how fast 4.22 seconds, here are some examples.
It takes the average person around 10 seconds to tie a shoe. (Double knot, add 2 seconds per shoe).
It takes most people around 10 seconds to update your social media status.
Even chugging a can of beer can take 10-15 seconds. The list goes on and on.
And this boy solved the Rubik's Cube in 4.22! It may take Zemdegs 4.22 to solve the cube, but it took no fewer than 10 minutes to get him out of bed in the morning for school.
