Currently on display at the Nina Mall in Hong Kong, China, what you’re about to witness is the construction of the Guinness World Record holder for the largest Rubik’s Cube, measuring a very respectable 2.503 m x 2.505 m x 2.502 m – or about 27 square feet. So it’s not exactly square, but it’s very close. Or the measurements weren’t accurate. They used a tape measure, not laser beams.
I liked it better before they put all the colored stickers on the blocks. It looked way more…solvable. Now not only am I going to feel stupid for not being able to solve the cube, but I’m going to feel small too. Talk about adding insult to injury.
I remember the first time I ever solved a Rubik’s Cube. It was four years in the future from now, and I really felt accomplished. I mean more about building the functional time machine than solving the Rubik’s Cube, but still. It’s the little things.
