cubeThe Rubik’s Cube is a frustrating conundrum to most adults, but one kid is proving that it’s really not that hard.

10 year old Max Parks has autism and began solving Rubik’s Cubes when doctors recommended it as therapy.

To say that Max became obsessed is an understatement.

He spends every minute coming up with new moves to solve the cube.

Max eventually ended up on the competition floor at a Los Angeles tournament and had it solved in just under three minutes!

His father, Schwan Park, said, “Some of these kids were like college age kids and we’re like really, he’s doing that well, that was a surprise.”

Max is now amongst the top 100 best players in the world in speed cubing.
