Speedcubing (also known as speedsolving, speed cubing or speed-cubing) is the activity of solving a Rubik's Cube or related puzzle as quickly as possible. Here, solving is defined as performing a series of moves that transforms an incomplete cube into a state where each of the cube's six faces is one single, solid color.
Regular cubes are sold commercially in variations of 2×2×2, 3×3×3, 4×4×4, and 5×5×5. Variations of the puzzle have been designed with as many as 20 layers, but the largest denomination cube that has been physically produced is a 7×7×7.  The current world record for a single solve of the 3×3×3 is now 7.08 seconds, set by Erik Akkersdijk at the Czech Open on July 12-13, 2008.
Speedcubing is the most prominent activity of the international Rubik's Cube community. Members come together to hold competitions, work to develop new solving methods, and seek to perfect their technique. As a part of the community, puzzle builders try to invent new forms of permutation puzzles.
