The fastest way to solve a Rubik's cube by a robot was Sub1, designed by Albert Beer (Germany). On January 23, 2016, he solved a magic cube in the Cubikon store in Munich in 0.887 seconds. VIDEO
Robot world record holder for the 4x4x4 cube is MultiCuber 3, designed by David Gilday (Great Britain). He needed a time of 1: 16.68 minutes on March 5, 2014 at the Big Bang Fair in Birmingham.

The most expensive Rubik's Cube was manufactured by Diamond Cutters International in 1995. The cube (in original size and fully functional) made of 18-carat gold is set with 22.5-carat amethysts, 34-carat rubies and 34-carat emeralds. The value of the cube has been estimated at US $ 1.5 million.

The youngest person who could arrange a Rubik's Cube was Ruxin Liu (China). At the Weifang Open 2013 on April 14, 2013, she solved a Rubik's cube in 1: 39.33 minutes. At this point she was 3 years and 118 days old. VIDEO

The largest mosaic made of Rubik's cubes measured 68 mx 4 m. The mosaic showing the skyline of Macau was created by the Canadian company Cube Works Studio in December 2012 from 85794 Rubik's cubes. It took 90 working days from the start of the design to completion. VIDEO
