Feliks Zemdegs can solve a Rubik's Cube faster than most people can even look at it.
At the 2015 Rubik's Cube World Championship held over the weekend in Sao Paulo, Brazil, the 19-year-old Australian solved the classic 3x3 puzzle in just 5.695 seconds to become the champ for the second year in a row.
But guess what: It's not the world record, which is 5.253 seconds and was set by American Collin Burns at the World Cubing Association competition in Doylestown, Pennsylvania in April. U.S.A.! U. S. A!
Previous to Burns' record, the fastest time for a human had been 5.55 seconds (a computer solved the puzzle in 3.253 seconds in 2014). So while Zemdegs is undoubtedly delighted to be a champion, he's not yet a world record holder.
He still has 0.442 seconds to go.
