How the Inventor of the Rubik’s Cube Cracked His Own Code

  • Опубликовано: 10 окт 2017
  • Since the 1980s, the Rubik’s Cube has captivated the minds of puzzle solvers around the globe. But how did one of the world’s most addictive and prolific puzzles come to be? It all began in the beautiful city of Budapest, in the beautiful mind of Ernő Rubik, a design and architecture lecturer looking for a tactile way to teach his students about three-dimensional space. But the story’s real “twist” came when the creator had to engineer a solution to his self-made conundrum. Think you have what it takes to crack the code? Take it up with the master himself.
    This Great Big Story was inspired by Genesis.

    The video never really tells how he cracked the code, it basically just said “He tried a bunch of different methods, and then he found a method that worked”

  • I save your wasted time on the internet.

    To everyone who is saying that this video does not answer the question, please read my comment.
    He didn't tell you 'How' he solved it, and I agree with you on this point.
    What he did is telling you the mentally that you need to have to solve it.
    Listen again to what he says at 2:21 until 2:28.
    The algorithm:
    1. There is always a way to find a solution.
    2. Try something different.
    3. Keep trying until you find the solution.

    I usually don’t trust people who rely on their ability of solving the cube as a way to measure their capabilities and intelligence because nowadays, according to my understanding, there are “steps”, or rather, algorithms to solve the cube which would be easy to find on the web
