Rubik’s cube is difficult to solve at the best of times but not for young Jianyu who is a Rubik Cube wizard. Que Jianyu, from China, is setting the world ablaze for a few years now with his Rubik Cube genius. This kid is the world’s best and fastest Rubik’s Cube puzzle finisher.
When Jianyu was just 7 years old – Yes! you read that right – just 7 years old, he set a Guinness World Record, solving the Rubik’s Cube puzzle in just 4 minutes and 49 seconds. Not so good you might say until we tell you he was blindfolded. Also, remember, he was just 7.
When he was 9 years old, he entered a Chinese talent competition called Amazing Chinese and solved the puzzle in 1.04.86 minutes.
And now he’s done it again. In the past, he solved two puzzles at the same time! But now – and you won’t believe this – he’s done three. He did it on the Australian television show, Little Big Shots, and he came on stage looking slightly nervous and with an interpreter.
JIANYU AND HIS RUBIK’S CUBE LOVE
Jianyu got his first Rubik’s Cube when he was just 6 years old. He owns around 500 Rubik’s cubes – that is insane – and he does have a sense of humour. When the Presenter Shane Jacobson asked how long Jianyu thought it would take him to solve the puzzle he answered ‘not in a million years.’
This cute kid, when asked to do the puzzle, asked if he should do it blindfolded. And then he asked for silence. He looked at the cube intensely, almost memorising the entire cube and its colors, and then – hey presto, quickly did the cube. When asked how he did it blindfolded, he said it was about memory and position. He then went on to do two at a time, and then, unbelievably – three.
Jianyu’s idol is Feliks Zemdeg who is the world record holder in the Rubik’s Cube and when he saw him walk on stage, Jianyu’s face lit up unbelievably. He’s also a young guy who spoke about the Rubik’s Cube community of 40 or 50 thousand people and then – they had a competition. Jeannie wanted to race.
They sat, back to back, the countdown began and – the speed was unbelievable. Zemdeg won, but only by a couple of seconds.
Here is the Jianyu solving three cubes simultaneously:
