    Wow, the person that jumped with him was fantastic! The guy having the seizure was definitely fortunate to have such a level headed person with him.

    It's apparently not photographic memory. There's a thread on Reddit about it. Each edge has some kind of letter combo so he needs to memorize those and then it's a matter of following some pre-determined algorithm as he's solving the cube. Still impressive, but not photographic memory.

    That's what I was thinking. He's not so much remembering images, he's remembering extremely long sequences :eek3:

    That's crazy! He was using all of his fingers to turn the cube.

    Not really long sequences - the longest single move on the Rubix cube is about 10 turns. He probably has to remember 10-15 "moves" (depending on how mixed up the cube was before he started).

    Solving a Rubix Cube is pretty easy if you have a moderate memory - there are specific moves you have to make to move specific pieces (duh!).

    You start out doing the first level - there are pre-set moves to move the inside squares and moves for the corner pieces.....same move every time - just different colors. Every moves is based around the 6 color middle "core" squares. You make the cross, then the corners.

    Then you do the second level - the second level is only like 4 squares/moves.

    The bottom is kinda the same as the top, but sometimes you have to repeat moves to get it right. The speed in which the cube is solved is basically based on how "lucky" you get when you get to the bottom level - sometimes it's only a few moves and sometimes it's a lot.

    Here are all the algorithms for anyone who wants to learn... :bigup:

    Using the wrong type or unsafe lift. Or lifting at the wrong lift points and the balance is off. Or being a fucktard.
