Watch: Eight YO solves three Rubik’s cubes all at one time!
Have you ever tried solving a Rubik’s puzzle? Sure, you have… but have you tried solving three, and all at the same time? This is no gibberish talk but a fact. An eight year old boy from India has entered the Guinness Book of Records by solving three Rubik’s cubes all together using his hands and feet!
Atharva R Bhat from Bangalore just established a new Guinness World Record (GWR ) by solving three of the 3×3 rotating puzzles simultaneously in an astonishing one minute and 29.97 seconds. Watch him in all glory here…
Atharva, who has always loved puzzles, became inspired to take up speedcubing in 2017 after meeting Krishnam Raju Gadiraju, a multiple speedcubing Guinness Record holder at the World Cube Association competition in Bangalore. Atharva started training in earnest in early 2020 after his school went online due to the COVID-19 pandemic. He not only spent a copious number of hours solving the 3×3 cubes, he also spent time meditating.
Before this, the record was held by Chinese teenager Jianyu Que, who completed the same feat in one minute and 36.39 seconds in 2018, or six seconds longer than it took Atharva.
