Video: Are you a Rubik’s Cube geek? Try jumping out of an airplane and solving one in free fall

I’ve by no means solved a Rubiks’ Cube. I’ve undoubtedly by no means tried to resolve one after jumping out of an airplane. Perhaps that’s why I’ve by no means created a viral video, both.

For geeks who grew up on the colourful puzzle toy of the Eighties, movies of folks solving them in fast vogue are a mainstay. Even robots have figured out how one can get all the colours to line up in simply seconds.

However a new Instagram video from the sporty of us at Red Bull stopped me mid-scroll on Wednesday night time.

Skilled skydiver, base jumper, stuntman, wing go well with pilot (and in all probability extra issues that wouldn’t match in an Instagram profile) Jeff Provenzano is proven — by way of helmet cam, duh — jumping from a airplane with the Cube in his arms.

Is the free fall long enough to solve it? ?‍♂️: @jeffprovenzano @redbullairforce #RedBullMindGamers #RedBullRubiksCube

Positioned in the sky on his again as he free falls, Provenzano spins the perimeters making an attempt to match the colours. I’ve been much less relaxed at my kitchen desk with an empty bottle of wine in entrance of me.

However positive sufficient, simply as his parachute deploys, Provenzano seems to point out off the solved puzzle. On his personal submit relating to the stunt, he stated it wasn’t as simple because it appeared.

“I attempted solving a Rubik’s dice in the air. Not as simple as I assumed it could be. It took a number of makes an attempt and this was the most effective. I began it in the airplane and completed it in freefall.”
