I just broke the Guinness World Record for the most Rubik's Cubes solved in 24 hours. AMA!
My name is Eric Limeback. I am 20 years old, and a 3rd year Business student at Wilfrid Laurier University in Waterloo, Ontario. I began the attempt at approximately 1pm on October 3rd, and finished at the same time today (October 4th).
The new record (to be approved) stands at 5,800 cubes, which is equal to one every 14.89 seconds. This beats the previous Guinness World Record of 4,786 by just over one thousand.
* I took short breaks as needed to eat, stretch, and use the bathroom. I used about 1-1.5 hours of break time.
* I prepared for the attempt with a 4-hour practice session the week before and some stretching.
* If you're interested in learning how to solve a Rubik's Cube, look on YouTube for some beginner tutorial videos. It's how I first learned 6 years ago.
I must give a huge thank you to Lubix Cube for sponsoring the event and my team of volunteers who scrambled cubes for me during each hour of the attempt. Could not have done it without them.
I will try my best to reply to questions tonight and throughout the day tomorrow!
