The Kid Should See This

Is this the largest Rubik’s Cube in the world?

British puzzle maker and collector Tony Fisher might have made the largest functional 3x3x3 Rubik’s Cube in the world. It measures 1.56 meters (5.11 foot) on each side, weighs 100 kilos (220 lbs), and can be solved by one person alone. Watch as he rolls it out and proceeds to meticulously turn each section to prove that it works like a standard, hand-held twisty puzzle. He explains:

“I am fascinated by the extremes in life and things that make me go wow! Take the Burj Khalifa for example. The sheer spectacle of it and the knowledge that not a single building in the entire world is taller. So, as a twisty puzzle fan since I first discovered the Rubik’s Cube back in 1980 it was natural that my two interests would come together. I have previously made the (unofficial) world’s largest Skewb, 4x4x4, Pyraminx and Tetraminx but none of these were actually that big and too obscure to bother troubling Guinness. In 2016 however after many years of thinking about it I finally made what I believe is the largest Rubik’s Cube…

Although I am confident that my puzzle is indeed the world’s largest Rubik’s Cube, at time of writing it has not yet been accepted and there isn’t actually an official record. I will update this page when necessary so stay tuned.”

After he created the video above, the puzzle needed to be fixed. He modified some of its inner workings and uploaded the update below. Watch as he makes size comparisons to his other cubes, and explains more about his love for combination puzzles as he twists the giant cube about:

Update! This Rubik’s Cube is officially the largest Rubik’s Cube in the world as declared by the Guinness World Records.
