Rubik's Cube World Record Now Stands at 5.253 Seconds

By Chris Mills on at

World-record Rubik’s cube solving happens obscenely quickly, but you can barely even count the moves in Collin Burns’s record-setting 5.253-second run.

Burns was taking part in the final round of a competition in Pennsylvania, US, on Saturday when he posted the time. Although the record hasn’t been updated yet on the website of the World Cube Association, Mashable reports that the result is expected to stand. The previous best for a 3x3 cube was 5.55 seconds, set by Mats Valk in 2013. [Mashable]
