Daniel Rose-Levine holds the Guinness World Record for solving a Rubik’s cube — with his feet. The upstate New York (Red Hook) 16-year-old can do it in 16.9 seconds. Rose-Levine first mastered the cube, using his hands, at age 11. His top time got to 5.3 seconds and he has more than 15 cubing-competition wins under his belt. The current world record for solving by hand is 3.47 seconds. But it came with a price: cubing for five hours a day led to a painful repetitive-stress injury at age 14.
… Out of the gate, he was foot-solving at 40 seconds. After hours of practice he now holds the Rubik’s Cube foot record at 16.9 seconds.
