Most of young people in Indonesia must be familiar with this stuff : Rubik’s Cube. The Rubik’s Cube is a 3-D mechanical puzzle invented in 1974 by Hungarian sculptor and professor of Architecture Erno Rubik. this world best selling toy is Originally called the “Magic Cube”. In a classic Rubik’s Cube, each of the six faces is covered by nine stickers, among six solid colors (traditionally white, red, blue, orange, yellow and green). A pivot mechanism enables each face to turn independently, thus mixing up the colors. For the puzzle to be solved, each face must be a solid color.

Solving a Rubik’s cube may take several hours for an amateur solver. but not for a Rubiks expert named Muhammad Iril Khairul Anam. He could solve 16 3×3x3 Rubik’s cubes with his eyes closed in 57 minutes! could you imagine? if it was me, I wouldn’t be able to solve any rubik within a week :P
