    Make a robot do it for you.

    I found this really neat. I think it might have been posted here a while ago, but i might have seen it on another message board.

    Edit: I really should post more, an average of 1 post every 100 days is preatty sad for spending so much time reading this board.

    I can take them apart and reasemble them so they are complete. Does that count?

    I have solved 4. . .24 hour round trip to Colorado. The first three took forever the last one I had done in like 10 minutes. I also know a few people that speed cube they can solve a new one in less than 10 seconds it's freaking weird. Anywho the middle square of all the side has a different color unless you switch the face plates around. How they hell do you get those off anyways? Do some have stickers? Mine the color is part of the plastic so no taking them off.

    THe blockas are connected to a weird gear kinda dealy. They move up and down and side toside. Take one block off and the other slip out. Its hard getting the last one back in the gear thinky thought.

    The fastest way to finish it is to grip it tightly in one hand and chunk it at a brick wall, that will finish it in no time...Thats how I finish mine :teeth:

    Start with one side. That's easy.

    Then you make one side bue make sure to get the top row on the side panels in order.

    Then you find out a way to get the middle row on the side panels.

    Then you do the four middle pieces on each side of the bottom.

    Then you do the bottom four corners.

    You're done!

    Dude that is the most confusing way I have ever hear dto solve a cube.

    Just get a new cube. Place your left middle finger on the blue center and twist in a counter-zim-clockwise manner then place your right thumb on the green center and go left two up four. Now place you left pinky on the whie center and twist in a zim-clockwise manner until all sides match up.

    I can do these things like nothing else. My average is probably 5 minutes.

    I'm with you on this.

    When I was little, they made it with stickers.

    I feel your pain.

    I can do the thing in about a minute. I got bored Senior year in high school and just learned to do it and then did it all throughout class over and over and over during my first semester in college.

    I also have the 4x4x4 cube. It is not really much harder, it just takes longer to do, around 5-10 minutes.
