Teen breaks Rubik’s cube record with his feet
A New York teenager said he used plenty of maths when he set the Guinness World Record for solving a Rubik’s cube — with his feet.
Daniel Rose-Lev-ine, 16, set the current record in March 2018 when he used his feet to solve a Rubik’s cube in 16.96 seconds.
Rose-Levine, who has set the record four times, was participating recently in a discussion about the mathematics behind his Rubik’s cube skills during an appearance at the National Museum of Mathematics.
“I started going to competitions for my hands,” Rose-Levine told. “But there’s 18 different events that they have in these competitions and one of them is feet, so I decided to start practicing feet just for the competitions and eventually I got pretty good at it.”
