A new world record for the Rubik’s cube has been set by Feliks Zemdegs, who solved the cube in 4.22 seconds. This isn’t the first world record for the 22-year old professional “speedcuber” from Australia – he previously won the world record at 4.73 seconds back in 2016. This year he stepped up his game, winning his title back from an American called Patrick Ponce. But no matter how unique your name, or how nimble your fingers, at the end of the day a machine, not a human, will always wear the real Rubik’s cube crown.
