Solving Rubik’s Cube While Juggling

I came across an amazing video last week of Ravi Fernando jugging a Rubik’s Cube and what looked like two bean bags. I couldn’t believe what I was watching, as he was literally solving the Rubik’s Cube while juggling.

I’ve never spent a great deal of time with a Rubik’s Cube, so have never understood the patterns and techniques to solve them fast but to watch someone do that while the cube is moving, spinning in every axis was incredible.

The video above was uploaded to YouTube at the end of February and is now approaching five million views and it still growing steadily. Not wanting to let the moment escape, Ravi has now uploaded a new video from his point of view (camera on his hat for example) showing him juggling 3 Rubik’s Cubes and solving all three in approximately six minutes.

Mind completely blown, wow!

  1. I wonder if he has it set up before he starts?

    Either way, very cool but cooler if he’s actually “solving it” as opposed to a pre-determined sequence.

  2. I think you’ll find that he is solving it on the fly. The Rubik’s cubes are changing direction, changing hands, his juggling patterns are changing as he compensates all while the Rubik’s cubes are spinning in whatever orientation as they fly through the air from hand to hand. I couldn’t see how you could keep track of that over 6 minutes, after all each of the Rubik’s cubes are the same – it isn’t like one is red, blue and green to differentiate between a pre-configured starting position.
