If you want captivating real-life video, check out the offering by Bill Blakemore (subscription required) on ABC. He covered the World Cubing Competitions in San Francisco, founded by Tyson Mao, a teenager, who is trying to revive the 1970s puzzle toy Rubik's Cube. Events include one-handed solving and blindfolded solving. Mao invented the sport of speed cubing, and was its world champion, until his younger brother Toby started beating him. The Mao brothers were hired by movie star Will Smith to teach him to speed-solve in a scene in his recent release The Pursuit of Happyness. But they now have to take a back seat to Asian champion Yu Jeong-Min, his nom-de-Rubik is Gungz, whose online videostream shows him cubing in an average time of 11.6 seconds.
