Scottish man solves Rubik’s Cube in less than 10 seconds | The Daily Dust delivering the best bric a brac, daily news and events with a British flavour

Breandan Vallance from Beith, Ayrshire, solved the Rubik’s Cube in a staggering 9.21 seconds at the UK’s Open Speedcubing Championship.

The 18-year-old from Scotland was crowned UK champion on Saturday after more than 50 masters of the iconic six-sided puzzle descended on Bristol’s Armada conference centre from all over the world.

The Rubik’s Cube, invented by Hungarian professor Erno Rubik in 1974 and licensed to Ideal Toys in 1980, celebrated its 30th anniversary this year.

More than 350 million cubes have been sold, and last year Prof Rubik unveiled his latest puzzling creation – the 3-D Rubik’s 360, bringing the popular into the 21st century.
