Is there a formula for solving this?

I saw a very old guiness record primetime thingy and the guy could solve a puzzle blindfolded. By the way he turned the thing, it seemed that there's some kind of formula or method for solving this. Not sure though. :)

Ha ha..Was playing with it months back and yes there is a formula. But it will work only if you have complete one side first and the rest will be step by step.:bsmilie:

easy way, no formula needed. take out all the 21 movable cubes and put them back in the same color.....:bsmilie: :bsmilie: :bsmilie:

Is it also known as magic square? If yes, heh, I miss it!

However I had never managed to complete all 6 sides tho, the last time (more then 10 years ago), I tear off all the colour stickers and paste back in order, after few hours of struggling. Grrrrr...

Yes there is a formula, it even comes on an instruction sheet. Using the formula, fastest I solved it was in 40 seconds (ie with no variables and everything going your way) and averagely it takes about 2-3 minutes.

However, those rubic cube champions appear not to be using the formula. I've seen on televsiion that they solve it in about 7 seconds. They must have an on-the-fly method as the formula is a systematic but confirmed method of solving, however, no matter how fast you are (even with luck), the systematic formula method will not win you championships

The "formula" solves ANY cube. The basis are to solve the cube by layers, not by sides. Solving by sides is the surest way to fail. I find it more difficult to solve 3 sides than to solve 6 sides.

Well each has their own strengths, the champions go on speed, this guy goes on memory.

Can't really see from the video, but I'm about 78% certain that the blindfolded guy uses the same formula as the one that I use. Only thing - I don't have his super memory heh :p
