When you just get started on your speed cubing journey - the transition from non-solver, to solver to speedcuber seems nearly impossible at every step. Describing speed cubing alone can be just difficult as there are so many elements and considerations to describe.
Thankfully the crew at Wired Science have done a fantastic job of describing this journey - the challenges, the possibilities and lastly the science of the Rubik's cube and speedcubing in an article and accompanying Youtube video. It is great to see prior speedcube.com.au Ambassador (and prior contributor to this blog) and Australian speedcubing legend - Feliks Zemdegs - featured prominently in this video along with many others.
Make sure to watch and share the video and do challenge yourself to read the accompanying article - "How to solve a Rubik's cube in 5 seconds - or less"
