Teen Solves Rubik's Cube In Less Than 6 Seconds And Breaks Record (Video)


If you were given 5 seconds to solve a Rubik's Cube to save your life, would you be able to do it?

Not many people can confidently answer yes, but one student, who attends Central Bucks West High School in Doylestown, PA, can. Because he actually did it, except it wasn't to save his life.

Meet Collin Burns, the teenager who's creating quite a buzz after successfully solving the puzzle in under 6 seconds to win a Rubik's Cube competition over the weekend.

According to Mashable, Burns was able to break the world record and complete it in 5.25 seconds, which is slightly faster than the previous record of 5.55 seconds.

The competition was legitimately held by the World Cube Association, which means Burns will make his way into the record books. It'd be pretty tragic if he solved a Rubik's Cube in a record-breaking 5.25 seconds and no one was there to see it!
