Daniel Kunkle and Gene Cooperman from Northeastern University in Boston have developed algorithms that can be useful for all kinds of different applications to make the puzzle more manageable.

In reaching this figure they programmed a powerful number-crunching supercomputer to arrive at one of 15,000 half-solved solutions. Their results showed that any Rubik's cube could be solved in a maximum of 29 moves, but most of the cubes could be completed in 26 moves, one less than the previous.

At this year's Caltech 2007 competition American Rubik's Cube expert Dan Dzoanbroke the world record for one-handed cube-solving by completing one in an incredible 17.9 seconds.
