Guinness World Records has just confirmed that lifelong puzzle fan Tony Fisher (UK) has created the world’s Largest Rubik’s cube, measuring a whopping 1.57 m tall, 1.57 m wide and 1.57 m long (5 ft 1.7 in x 5 ft 1.7 in x 5 ft 1.7 in).

It took Tony just two months to construct his fully functional Rubik's Cube at his home in Suffolk, where he demonstrated it works by attempting to solve it – not an easy feat when the puzzle weighs about 100 kg.
In his application for the title, Tony told Guinness World Records: “I am a Rubik’s Cube fan and enjoy making and solving twisty puzzles in general. I am also fascinated by world records and I have always wanted to break one or set one.”
He explained: “[The cube] was constructed from plastic sheet, plastic pipe, plastic foam, ABS plastic core … cardboard, vinyl sticker material, gaffer tape and cast polyurethane resin.” The Guinness World Records guidelines for this title state that the Rubik’s cube must be made from the same materials as a regular sized Rubik's cube.

The puzzle enthusiast has had visitors from as far afield as Japan come to see his record-breaking construction and he hopes to find a museum to display it in soon.
