Only people with eagle eyes can solve a new Rubik's cube brainteaser in under 30 seconds


The Rubik’s cube is a classic mind game for all ages, challenging players to align a single color on each side.

The popular 3D puzzle has been recreated into a brainteaser that shows dozens of cubes that appear identical – but there is an odd one in the bunch.

The objective is to spot the cube that does not match in under 30 seconds – but only those with eagle eyes can spot it.

The new brainteaser was created by online gaming experts at MrQ who said the puzzle will ‘leave even the most eagle-eyed viewers scratching their heads in anguish.’

‘It takes the average person 30 seconds to find the odd Rubik’s cube out and a whopping one in three admitting to giving up finding the colorful cube completely,’ the company shared.

The Rubik’s cube was invented by a Hungarian design teacher Erno Rubik in 1974, first calling it the Magic Cube that was later renamed in 1980 by Ideal Toy & Novelty Company.

The game hit shelves worldwide shortly after, selling one hundred million within two years – making it the most popular puzzle in history.

The 27 tiny cubes called ‘cubies’ each carry one of six colors, and when assembled they formed a square.

The world record for solving the puzzle is 3.13 seconds.

California native Max Park set the record in 2023, breaking the previous top speed of 3.47 seconds. 

Park, who was diagnosed with moderate to severe autism as a child, has won over 400 events against fellow ‘cubers.’

But Park is no match for a robot that solved a Rubik’s cube in just 0.305 seconds.

The technology was developed this year by a team of engineers at Mitsubishi Electric Corporation.

 The robot features a set of motors that work in combination with one another to move the cube around at lightning speed.

However, during the testing process, the team encountered an unexpected issue – the cube struggled to keep up with the speed of the robot.

During the first official record attempt, the puzzle jammed up.

Thankfully, with some fine-tuning, the team was able to resolve the issue, and nailed it the second time.
