So you may or may not know that Netflix is spending almost 90% of it’s revenue on content, which means it absolutely sees the need to produce content as well as buying it.

One such little gem is called “The Speed Cubers“.
On the surface it is a story about the cult like world of people that train to solve rubiks cubes at speed, be it the original 3×3 that we all know, or a wide variety of even more difficult cube challenges (eg 4×4, 5×5). There are even challenges using one hand or your feet!
