Biggest Rubik's Cube 17x17x17
Biggest Rubik's Cube 17x17x17

Hi, my name is Kartikay and I've been speedcubing for more than 4 years. Considering all those years I still haven't seen a puzzle I couldn't solve.


But the task that is in front of me today- scares even me. I want to solve the biggest Rubik's Cube in the world - 17x17. 17x17 Rubik's Cube, 7 pounds of plastic, 6colors and 6 sides, 17 edges and more than 1500 different elements.


Right now each one of them is in its place,and it's the only position when the 17x17 cube is considered solved. Today I will have to scramble it and then,using only my experience, patience and a lot of time - to solve it.


It's gonna be incredibly hard to do, but Ialso spent a lot of time and effort to prepare this video, only your help inspires me to accomplish tasks this hard. And now we can start.

You know, when I got this cube, I didn't even think about my feelings when I started solving it. I was worried a little bit, but right nowI'm worried a lot more and I even feel like if I stay quiet, you could actually hear my heartbeat, because to defeat a monster like this - it is a real challenge.


All I have to do now is to scramble it, then take a deep breath and start this long path. Let's compare the sizes of a regular rubik's cube and this monster, just look at the size, it's unbelievable. I don't have any more words, I really wanna start the timer, I would use my phone, and in the beginning I wanna see how much timeit will take for me to scramble it.


I'm probably making the biggest mistake in my life, but I really hope it will bring some joy both to you and me. Let's go. So, guys, I think this would be enough. It took me 4 minutes to scramble it. Only four minutes of chaotic turning to scramble it to this state, but you can still see some elements close to each other, actually that doesn't matter, but okay, I'll do a few more turns, maybe it will make you more confident.

Some people say that in order to solve therubik's cube this big, or any other puzzle - you need to scramble it, remember how you did it and then reverse all the movements. Guys, it's impossible, and of course it can't be done in puzzles this big. So everything you'll see now is gonna be real,no editing, no tricks or magic.


Okay guys, this is the moment, the 17x17 is scrambled in front of me, and all I have to do now is to start up a timer on my phone,and I'll ask you to write your guesses in the comments, how long do you think it will take me to solve this beast. Let's start. Guys, an hour. I've been doing this for an hour.


To be honest, I'm kind of tired already andI couldn't even solve the white center in this hour. It's a good thing I started doing it more quickly at the end of the first hour, so we'll see if I manage to do all the other centers faster, I really hope so, but my eyes are actually really tired.

I also started to feel pain in my back and my arms, just imagine, 7 pounds of plastic, which you always hold on your stretched arms,it's not that easy. Okay, let's continue, I want to do this as fast as I can. Let's go. Guys, I'm finishing the first center, it's been 1 hour, 4 minutes and 35 seconds, it's actually a lot harder than I thought, I'm Not gonna stop and now I'm flipping the cube and going to solve the second center.


I really hope this one is gonna be a little faster, so please, wish me luck, guys. Let's go. You know, guys, it's only been a few minutes for you, but I've been sitting here for 1 hour and 46 minutes, and it's a lot harder than I thought. So, I'm finishing the second center.


Done. Two centers are finished in 1 hour and 52minutes, let's continue. It is really important not to lose myself in these colors, not to lose myself in these centers, and the main thing - is not to break the first two centers. Because if it happens, I will lose A LOT of time, which I don't have. Because I'd like to set a record! Though I don't even know if it exists.


But I'll try. Let's continue. Update. My head hurts really bad. I knew it was gonna be hard, but I wasn't expecting this. I don't know what to do with these elements,they all are mixed up in my head, two hours, more than two hours, and I have no idea howI'm talking now.


The third center, two hours and 48 minutes. It's not that good, three centers in 2:48,there's too many elements, too many... Guys, it's been three hours already, and I Can't believe I've been doing this for three hours! Now is the most difficult part, because Ineed to keep most of these centers I did and to solve the others, but it's hard, and I Don't even know how to do that.


I should either do them one by one or to keep doing this in sections, but I can't do it yet. The last turns for the red color are done,and the hardest part is ahead - solving the last two centers, then I'll need to do the second stage, a huge stage of solving the edges, but now I need to focus on solving the blue and the orange centers.


The hard thing is that they are solved at the same time, and again, I can't let myself destroy the other side, at the moment the only thing destroyed is me. Okay guys, let's go. You know, guys, on the fourth hour you stop understanding the reality, you don't know and can't see anything except this cube, and you know, you get a lot of doubts after each turn and movement, your hands are tired, fingers hurt really bad, because just imagine picking up these 7 pounds of plastic each time you need to make a turn.


But, you know, somehow I found a second breath and I believe that I can do it. I really want to solve this cube, I wanna do this as soon as possible, and I see that it is possible. 4 hours, it's been four hours, and it wasn't pointless, I don't know where I get this power and will from, but I will do it.


Did you hear that sound? What happened? God, that was so scary! I almost broke the biggest rubik's cube in the world, and it's not a clickbait. One, two, three, done. The centers are ready. 4:17, it's four seventeen and all of the centers are ready. Okay guys, I have a chance to finish it in5 hours, I will try really hard, I need maximum concentration, maximum speed now, I'm going for it.


Guys, wish me luck, I need it right now. I really wanna do it in less than 5 hours. Let's go. To be honest, I'm starving, I'm really tired,but I'm not gonna stop. I really wanna finish it. Come on, come on, come on, YES! I did it! In less than 5 hours! 4 hours, 57 minutes! The biggest rubik's cube in the world.


I'm the happiest person on this planet, guys. I'm really grateful that I'm having this cube on my tablet and I got a chance to solve it. I didn't lose this chance, I used it, andI solved the biggest rubik's cube in the world in less than 5 hours. I don't know what the world record is, but this is fast enough! A huge thanks to me, you wouldn't believe this, but I'm really thanking myself, to sit through 5 hours of this.


A huge thanks to the inventor of this cube, a huge thanks to you for supporting me, for your share and comments, for motivating me to do more and better and thanks to youI finally did it, made myself happy and I really hope that it made you happy as well. I'm really tired, but really happy.
