Mega Man Pixel Art Made With Time-Lapse Rubik's Cubes


One YouTube user proves he's no Rubik's noob.

You want a tried and true tactic for making yourself look smart? Try learning how to solve a Rubik's cube in a speedy fashion. While it may not seem the most practical of skills, if movies have taught us anything, it's that a quick hand with a Rubik's Cube has the potential to both prove yourself an intelligent individual and, if you do it front of the right executive, land yourself a high paying job <a href=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M9wC8PsWu-c>on Wall Street.

That being the case, YouTube poster <a href=http://www.youtube.com/user/Kyudan2/videos?tag_id=&sort=dd&view=0&shelf_index=0>Kyudan2 may very well be set for life. Going well beyond the mere solving of Rubik's Cubes, he uses them to replicate old school pixel art. While the bulk of his Rubik's-related videos are focused on <a href=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gPV2bdycIw8> Pokemon, his most recent post, <a href=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oKER_rGIJRY>which rebuilds Mega Man, may be the best yet (because it's Mega Man).

Kyudan2's Mega Man involved a whopping ninety-seven Rubik's Cubes, each solved individually and then twisted and turned to match the Blue Bomber's NES-era sprite. The only change he had to make was with the coloring, because Rubik's Cubes lack the separate shades of blue necessary to match the sprite more closely. The video itself is time-lapsed, lasting just a little over a minute; a mere fraction of the days it would probably take the rest of us to put together something even close to this impressive.

The OCD in me is screaming about the missing cubes in the lower right corner.

Was it just me or were those hands huge?
i think they were small cubes.
Which only makes it more impressive. Those things are fiddly!

It does seem odd to leave them out. Maybe he ran out of cubes.

Them cubes are teeny!

Just to clarify, solving a rubix cube in the most basic fashion is really easy ... it just takes a little patience to remember 5 different move sets and how to set it up to do those move sets. I took my time to learn how to solve it and it took me a week, if you took out all my time putting it down for 5 or 6 hours due to frustration, it would have took me 2 days and I'm not a quick learner.

Then with a 1 or 2 alterations to what you know you can solve a megaminx.
