Rumble / Unusual TalentsIt has been 38 years since the Hungarian professor of architecture Erno Rubik invented his cube, the popular object which was alternately regarded as an object of fun, art, mathematics, nostalgia and frustration. Some credit its enduring fame to its universality, as it needs no instructions, and others to its complexity. The beauty of the Rubik’s cube lays in the fact that anyone with the basic human senses can instantly understand it: fields need to be allingend using colour as guidance, an rotating platforms tease the parts of your brain in charge of strategic thinking. Immensely popular in the 1980s, the cube is enjoying a resurgence of popularity and, in a world increasingly run by engineers and algorithms, relevance.

Some people have a very difficult time solving a <a href="" target="_blank">Rubik's Cube</a>, and some, like this girl on the video can do it it less than 13 seconds! The video is shot on an official Rubik’s Cube competition. She briefly analyses the arrangement of the colored fields and on that basis calculates the algorithms in her head. From the moment she places her hands on the time counter until the final turn of the platform there are exactly 13,894 seconds! But make no mistake, this not only owed to an <a href="" target="_blank">amazing talent</a>, but also to hours an hours of practice.
