In June 2011 Depaul UK, a youth homelessness charity, broke a world record by having over 300 people in one place solving the Rubik’s cube at the same time. You can view photos of the event on their Flickr page and watch a video covering the attempt below.
This November the charity plans to attempt to break this record by bringing together 2000 cube solvers. According to the charity’s website “the manufacturers of the Rubik’s Cube are sponsoring the event and will give £100 for everyone who successfully solves the cube, meaning we could raise an incredible £200,000!”
