There's a guy obsessed with numbers that is putting out videos on Youtube involving the cube.

Number of Combinations in a cube : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QV9k6dRQQe4
God's Number : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yF2J39Xny4Q
Superflip : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BTyzE-NDga8

Enjoy

I was just about to make a topic about this ^^
Even though the videos are about thing most people on this forum would consider "basic", i really enjoyed them. I guess the videos wouldnt make sense to anyone if they were about jumbling, the multidodecahedron, or the complex 3x3.

It's good to see these videos. GuiltyBystander's backwards Rubik's Cube + Unicycle video is used as part of Rubik'sTube / YouCube video.

I was disappointed he didn't go into any more detail about any of the three subjects. For example he doesn't provide any reasoning for why twisting a corner or flipping and edge or swapping two pieces brings you to a new orbit.

There is another guy (KevinsMath) that has a pretty good series of videos about the group theory and math behind the Rubik's Cube. It's an 8-part series, here is a link to the first:
