How To Cheat And Look Like You Can Solve The Rubik's Cube

I can't solve the Rubik's Cube. All the spinning I do, all the rejiggering I try, all I end up with is a mess of colours with no idea how I got there. It's OK though! I can now fake it like I know how. Matt Parker has figured out a way to cheat and make it look like you can solve the Rubik's Cube — even though you have no freaking clue.

The secret is in performing the same sequence in the Rubik's cube over and over and over and over. When you use the same sequence, the Rubik's Cube will eventually reset itself and get back to where you start from (even if it looks like a mess during the whole process). Watch the video, Parker's sequence is simply moving the left column down and the right column up and turning the whole cube around and doing it again. You'll eventually get there!

    Solving a Rubiks Cube isnt really that hard, you have to memorise a few algorithms but after that you can amaze your friends or contemplate how boring your life is.

    As you can tell, my life is boring.

    Excellent video! It's not cheating at all though. Cheating would be something like removing the coloured stickers, this is simply a more simple way of solving it without knowing the maths behind it.

    someone obviously watched the latest vsauce leanback..
