Thank you all! Exactly what I was looking for...

Remove the best 5 solves and worst 5 solves and calculate the mean of the remaining 90 solves, or
is that actually how you calculate it? I always thought it was really just average of 100

how much time is taken when a someone places their hands on the stackmat timer after finishing the timer, and the stackmat time delay in total? Im trying to find out if Jay's sub 4 fail was actually sub 4 if his cube didn't slip.

Jay's sub 4 fail would have been around 3.6 seconds if it wasn't for the drop. I calculated this by framecounting

Does anyone know if there is any development in eco-friendly cubes made from recycled materials/plant based materials?

Iirc the fast people usually take around 0.1 s between starting the timer and doing the first move, and also around 0.1 s between doing the last move and stopping the timer.

I imagine that's different for the fast events, though, where timer starts/stops can be a significant part of the solve time.

(edit: Also I kind of ignored the main question because of a parsing error, but basically the Stackmat timer's delay is on the order of 1 centisecond or less. The latency between the displays and the actual timer is a separate issue. If I'm not wrong, the external display only updates around ten times per second. The built-in display probably also has a bit of latency, but I don't know how large that is.)

On a normal solve, yes, but he dropped the cube into his lap.

How do people make speedcubing method for the 3x3? Do they use programs or something?

They think of an idea. Algs can be generated with programs but with today's software methods are out of reach.

How do they generate algs? And what do you mean with "methods are out of reach"

You can generate algs with a program such as cube explorer, and I mean that the computers we have now can't make a method

Oh ok tysm for the help.
