Last Saturday night, we happened to be at Orchard Central and saw this.
Do you know what it is?
It's a "Mosaic Art" made from 5000 Rubik's Cubes.
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.
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.
(results from www.worldcubeassociation.org)
How fast can you solve the Rubik's cube?
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...
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
Not very sure DK. :-(
I wonder what happens to all the cubes after they clear it off?
this is cool:) Mr Ernő Rubik would be happy to see still how alive his invention is!
Oh yes! He's from Budapest, your city!
How fast can you solve the cube? hehe..
i've never solved a rubik's cube...i don't think i've even held one since i was a kid!
hmm.. did they build that by pasting the colour sticker on? Hopefully not :P
How many of these cubes do you have in your house? Zsolt solves all of it? LOL
Neither have I!
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...
erm, i am damn fast. it takes me only 30 seconds? (after I've pounded the thing to bits, and reconstructed it again :P) mwuahahaahha
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!
of course, the birth of venus!
really fantastic art piece! it wouldn't have crossed my mind that it's made from r.cube, such ingenuity! ^0^
(I average under 40 seconds to 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.
I can solve Rubik's cube in around 25seconds (Friedrich). Meh!
