Rubik's Cube Singapore Open 2010

Last Saturday night, we happened to be at Orchard Central and saw this.
Do you know what it is?

Mosaic Wall Portrait - using Rubik's Cubes



It's a "Mosaic Art" made from 5000 Rubik's Cubes.

Yes, portrait's arranged with Rubik's Cube



Just like most things in Singapore, since they are doing something, they would want to make a record out of it. So they made it the largest Rubik's cube mosaic wall world record.

Largest Rubik's Cube Mosaic Wall



We were not there on Sunday to witness the competition, but Teo Kai Xiang won the Rubik's Cube Singapore Open 2010.

1st: Teo Kai Xiang with an average of 12.36 seconds.
2nd: Mohamad Azraei with 12.48 seconds.
3rd: Nipat Charoenpholphant 13.44 seconds.

Goodness gracious me! It must have been a huge picture.

No, I was once able to make one side, that's it.

U are like me! a one sider. haha...

DK said...

WOW!!!! Any idea how long will the mosaic wall be there for? AMAZING man.

I think I'll need a couple of minutes to solve the rubik cube with instructions. Without instructions, it will take me FOREVER to solve. :P

Keropok Man said...

Not very sure DK. :-(

I wonder what happens to all the cubes after they clear it off?

Zsolt said...

this is cool:) Mr Ernő Rubik would be happy to see still how alive his invention is!

Keropok Man said...

Zsolt,
Oh yes! He's from Budapest, your city!

How fast can you solve the cube? hehe..

Zannnie said...

Rikki said...

chillycraps said...

hmm.. did they build that by pasting the colour sticker on? Hopefully not :P

Keropok Man said...

Zannnie,
How many of these cubes do you have in your house? Zsolt solves all of it? LOL


Rikki,
Neither have I!


Chillycraps,
Hey, that's what I did when I was a little kid. I was so frustrated, I peel off the stickers and paste them back with the correct colour sides. hehe...

doc said...

well, at least, the record is for some creative work. over here, they try for the largest mooncake, the most numerous aerobic dancers prancing around & other spastic stuff nobody else cares to remember!

and no, i can't solve the @#%$*&!! cube!

Hi, I am Kai Xiang, the guy that won the competition. Glad to see these pictures as our work have been appreciated and enjoyed. FYI, this picture was made by volunteers from Singapore and Malaysia using 3days.
