On Saturday (Jan. 14), Caltechs Rubiks Cube Club will host the second International Rubiks Cube Tournament at the Exploratorium museum with open registration.
The first tournament was held in 1981, and now, 25 years later, theyre holding another with contestants expected from around the world.
Among the elite cubers expected to attend are Jessica Fridrich, creator of the most popular speed cubing system; Lars Petrus from Sweden who finished fourth in the 1982 Rubiks Cube World Championships; and a 14-year-old Japanese student, Shotaro Makisumi.
One organizer says the reward for having the fastest hands is simply the glory.
