New Rubik’s Cube World Record! 4.74 seconds.
I have a chat with Mats Valk about his record-breaking solve. Plus a break-down of how he actually did it.
UPDATE: The Valk 3 cube is back in stock on Maths Gear after the original stock sold-out within an hour.

- People have pointed out (first person was Anurag Lamsal) it is not the fastest solve by a human, just the fastest official solve. There are videos of people solving cubes faster at home. Looking at you, Feliks.
