Smallest Rubik’s Cube: Who Created This?

Who created the Smallest Rubik’s Cube?

Smallest Rubik’s Cube – This toy could be the tiniest one in the whole world and a British puzzle maker created this.

Rubik’s cube is one of the most popular toys in the world. It is loved by many kids and kids at heart as well. Several versions of this were created. The toy’s popularity led to the creation of competitions in different parts of the globe.

One of the versions of this that was created was hailed as the world’s largest Rubik’s Cube by the Guinness World Record, based on the article in Mental Floss.

The biggest version was 5 feet tall and was equally wide and long. Tony Fisher’s creation did not stop there. He attempted also to create the smallest version of this. His next challenge was to create the world’s smallest 3D combo puzzle.

A video posted on Tony Fisher’s YouTube Channel showed the difference between the biggest and smallest Rubik’s cube. The tiny toy is only a little more than half a centimeter wide, and it’s smaller than the current record holder.

With this, the British puzzle maker probably will not be going to submit it for World Record consideration. He explained that filed down a larger Rubik’s Cube to make the toy and the final result wasn’t 100 percent proportional.

This was his explanation on his website:

In June 2016 I took one of Callum’s 3D printed unstickered 6mm Subatomic Rubik’s Cubes and filed it down to a size of 5.4mm. Although I had made it smaller, the proportional aspect (cubies with square sides) of it was lost. So whether it’s still a Rubik’s Cube seems uncertain. When stickered it has an edge of 5.6mm. The previous smallest is 5.7mm unstickered or 5.9mm stickered by Evgeny. It’s proportional and there’s no question about its status as a Rubik’s Cube. The current official smallest is 10mm also by Evgeny which Guinness needs to update. I am not sure if I will submit this as a world record attempt. Not only is it disproportional but a huge amount of credit must go to Callum plus the 3D printing machine at shapeways that physically made the parts prior to me modifying them.
