Ready To See The Solution To A 17X17X17 Rubik’s Cube?

Okay. First of all I must state that I quite enjoy the Rubik’s Cube, many times when I’m at home or at work at the arcade I have picked up a cube and tried my hardest to solve it. I have failed. It has been this way since my youth when the Rubik’s Cube craze was sweeping the country…

…and to this day it mocks me daily with my failure. It. Mocks. Me!

So when Andrew Liszewski over at Gizmodo posted this young man named Kenneth solving a 17X17X17 monstrosity of a Rubik’s Cube designed by one Oskar Van Deventer…I promptly passed out for a couple of minutes at the thought of trying to solve such a beast. When I awoke and picked myself off the floor I braced myself as I watched the timelapse video Kenneth uploaded which chronicles the 7 and a half hours it took to solve it.

Kenneth was kind enough to post his entire solution as well…when you have 7 and a half hours to spare.

    If one journeys to the edge of the universe (past the restaurant) and manages to poke through the rift that walls our reailty to the multiverses…one should not be surprised to find this monster cube, twixt madness and sanity.

    You are only okay if the cube is solid and fully solved.
