|Rubik's Cube: Underwater, goggles, no breathing equipment|
|1||6 cubes||Dan Harris||Time: 4 minutes 10 seconds|
You need to be extremely relaxed to do this for so long, but the cubes moved well!
|2||5 cubes||Stefan Huber||Time was about 1:40 min.|
I think that 6 cubes are possible. Let's see what I can do the next time.
|3||4 cubes||JoŽl van Noort||Thanks to the great Canadian speedcuber Matt Walter for helping me with attempt. Done in a swimming pool near my home in Leiden. My website.||20060711|
|3||4 cubes||Matt Walter||Thanks to the great Dutch cuber JoŽl van Noort for helping me with this attempt. Done in a swimming pool near JoŽl's appartment in Leiden.||20060711|
|3||4 cubes||Erik Akkersdijk||At a swimming pool with Dennis, we also tried to do blindfold solves with memo above water and OH. 5 is very possible.|
This was fun!!
|6||3 cubes||Edouard Chambon||Time: 1 minute 6 seconds|
3 cubes ! I can do 4 with more apnee.
|6||3 cubes||Thomas Rouault||Time: 1 minute 29 seconds|
|6||3 cubes||Frank Morris||Time: not measured|
Solved 3 cubes under water.
|9||2 cubes + 1 2x2x2 cube||Nathan McKervey||Time: 2 minutes 47 seconds|
My best friend and I would see who could swim the farthest and hold their breath the longest on the swim team. I never thought it would come in handy. I think I can improve my record because I have held my breath for 3 min 20 sec but I will need another 3x3x3 cube.
|9||2 cubes + 1 2x2x2 cube||Derrick Eide||Man i almost died doing this solve! lol jk but i was on the verge of coming up because i was trying so hard. i want to do 3 cubes sometime hopefully.|
|9||2 cubes + 1 2x2x2 cube||ZalŠn MihŠly||Time: 1:48.30 I'm not crazy ) I love the bathroom D||20080813|
|12||2 cubes||Ron van Bruchem||Time: 59 seconds|
The cubes were moving remarkably well, even now that they have been under water.
|12||2 cubes||Adam Gťhin||Time: 1 minute 38 seconds|
My goal is to solve three cubes under water because I normally can stay under water more than 2min30.
|12||2 cubes||Andrew Roley||Time: 1 minute 30 seconds|
This should really be posted as CRAZY; it's at least crazier than on a treadmill.
Done in the hot tub the band was staying at for our competition. Got a video too. Once I got rid of the nervousness, I could do the cubes a lot better as well as keeping my breath in easier.
|12||2 cubes||Thomas Rouault||Time: not measured.|
I popped during the last movement of the second cube but I replaced the piece and finished the cube under water. Thanks to "doudou" to time me and good luck to him for the next time.
|12||2 cubes||Jacob Rueth||Time: not measured.|
I had to rescramble my cube underwater cause I only have one cube to use! 2 cubes + scrambling all underwater :) I am sexy!
|17||1 cube||Ibrahim Vajgel-Shedid||Time: 19.02|
I was trying to get a sub 20 lol I did inspection underwater and no googles D
|17||1 cube||Brent Morgan||Time: 20 seconds|
It was a cheap cube, and I was very surprised how well it turned. I have to say, the F2L was _very_ fast because it was a little lucky. But it was a decent solve.
|17||1 cube||Ron van Bruchem||Time: 23 seconds|
In our bath tub.
|17||1 cube||Bob Burton||23.19 seconds|
I did this on vacation in Wildwood. I can only hold my breath for about 30 seconds. Visit my site.
|17||1 cube||Kenneth Brandon||Time: 24 seconds|
Tried it a couple more times in a pool, and got this. Also a friend of mine held his breath for 3 min and 30 seconds under water. If I could do that I could do 6 maybe 7 cubes under water.
|17||1 cube||Johnathan Brouillet||Time: 26.34 seconds|
I was astonished at how well the cube turned underwater. But i wouldnt recommend throwin all your cubes in a pool. Its not the best thing for them.
|17||1 cube||Andrew Sturkie||Concentration is key!||20080725|
|17||1 cube||Tristan Wright||30.72 seconds.I'm not one for holding my breath, but if it involves speedcubing then I'll do it!||20060816|
|17||1 cube||Arthur Adams||My third attempt ever, after swim practice. The second attempt was a POP. Sub-30 though.||20080120|
|17||1 cube||John Shephard||37.89 seconds. The cube was very smooth actually. I did this in my in-ground pool.||20070616|
|17||1 cube||Tony Snyder||Time: 38 seconds|
Only tried this a couple times, the cube likes to come apart under water so it has to be turned slower, plus it can be tricky to see past the air bubbles.
|17||1 cube||Richard Patterson||Time: 40 seconds|
This was done in a jacuzzi.it got pretty hot down there. The air bubbles were hard to see past too. I had to stop after a few solves cuz I got dizzy, I wouldn't suggest jacuzzi solving. Amazingly the water didn't slow my solves down much. My avg out of water is sub 35.and I hit under 40 underwater every time. It shows good promise for my 12 hour cubing marathon this summer.
|17||1 cube||Michael Atkinson||Time: 42 seconds|
Took me ages. But I didn't have googles on, so it was all blurry. I had to take about 5 seconds to look around in between every step, which led to this terrible time. I'll improve as soon as I find some goggles.
|17||1 cube||Oscar Roth Andersen||Yes. this was on my schools yearly "record day" and I only had one try xD||20080909|
|17||1 cube||Jorick Horn||time: 1:4.43|
I did this on vacation in Wildwood, NJ. It would be WAY too much of a coincidence if Bob's solve were done in the same pool, but anyway, my parents won't let me post the video, because they're afraid somebody will go and drown.
|17||1 cube||Thomas Kohn||Time: 1 minute 9 seconds|
my first attempt, i also tried in gothenburg with anders larsson and others, but we didn't stop the time. .
|17||1 cube||Joseph Liao||Time: 1 minute 18 seconds.|
In my bath tub, with a meffert's cube!
|17||1 cube||Chris Ruiz||Time: 1 minute 15 seconds|
I was bored in my pool so I decided to try to solve my cube underwater in one breath took me like three tries but I got it in 75 seconds alot of fun really different from solving normally have fun.
|17||1 cube||Andrew Templeton||This took 1:26:73 for me to do, kinda hard to do while attempting to stay underwater.||20070715|
|17||1 cube||Kegham Khosdeghian||Time: 1 minute 33 seconds|
Cube works incredibly smoothly underwater. I had trouble staying underwater at first.I did it faster than i usually do. Done at my building's pool.
|17||1 cube||Stefan Pochman||Time: 1 minute 39 seconds|
Bad cube, bad system, but at least it wasn't in the bathtub. Real men use a swimming pool to submerge completely ;-)
|17||1 cube||Brendan Howell||n/a||20080625|
|17||1 cube||Fabio Feo||n/a||20080827|
|17||1 cube||Dylan Moore||Time: not measured|
Harder than it seems. I about died for this record, it might just be from a bad cube. For all of you who are afraid of this record let me tell you it dosn't mess up anything about ur cube other than wearing off the lubing. My cube is still alive.
|17||1 cube||Anders Larsson||Time: not measured|
Done in the evening after Chalmers Open 2005.
|17||1 cube||Joe Still||One day I decided hey i see if its kewl to do under water and i can hold my breath for a while but its harder to hold when cubing to me like 5 tries.||20070512|
|17||1 cube||Daniel De Vera||funniest thing ever.||20070607|
