A bit of Showin' Off for Show and Tell Friday

When our oldest grandson, Jared was just 9 years old he received his first Rubik's Cube. His Uncle Brad told him about algorithms and gave pointers on how to solve this challenging puzzle. He spent two weeks doing little else but practicing the steps required to solve the puzzle quicker than his uncles. It has been a few years but he can still complete the puzzle
in less than 2 minutes.
He is happy to share his skill with you:

From Wikipedia:
The Rubik's Cube is a 3-D mechanical puzzle invented in 1974 by Hungarian sculptor and professor of architectural Erno Rubik. Originally called the "Magic Cube", the puzzle was licensed by Rubik to be sold by Ideal Toys in 1980 and won the German Game of the Year special award for Best Puzzle that year. As of January 2009, 350 million cubes have sold worldwide making it the world's top-selling puzzle game. It is widely considered to be the world's best-selling toyFor more Show & Tell Friday visit Cindy @ My Romantic Home.

Oh my goodness, L, our son used to LOVE rubic cubes. He's now all grown up and is an engineer so I like to take partial credit for buying all those rubic and other learning toys when he was a kid! Ha! Sincerely, Susan from writingstraightfromtheheart.blogspot.com

Amazing! What a great video. Thank you for sharing it with us. I could never quite figure them out - close but not close enough! My sons both managed to figure them out though so I lived vicariously through their efforts!

I never did more than two sides at a time. I saw a boy on tv who could look at all six sides and then be blindfolded and solve it. I think it's amazing for anyone to solve it, even not! Good job for your grandson! I love that you showed the video for the Show and Tell.

I like your new header and layout. I hadn't seen it yet.

Blessings,
Kayren

I meant even not blindfolded if that was confusing. I should have re-read that before I hit post.
