[[Image:LL higlight.jpg|thumb|150px|left|The Last Layer]]
 
  
Today's featured article is the '''[[Last Layer]]'''.
 
  
 +
----
  
The term [[Last Layer]] (normally abbrevated as LL, also called Last Slice) refers to the complete movable "slice" of a twisty puzzle which is the last to be solved in a [[Layer-By-Layer]] method. The Last Layer is the layer that must be solved on a [[cube]] when all of the other layers have already been finished. All pieces of the last layer can move together.
 
  
Last layer is didferent from a Last [[face]]. Rather than just including the stickers of the last side of a twisty puzzle, the last layer includes all of the stickers on all of the pieces of the last slice.

[[Feliks Zemdegs]] is an [[Australia]]n speedcuber from Melbourne, Australia. He is the current world record holder for 3x3 average and 5x5 single and average. He is widely considered to be the most successful competitive cuber in history. Even though he is fast, Feliks is starting to lose world records, because he got very quick before anyone else, now other people are catching up to him, like [[Mats Valk]], who broke his 3x3 single(5.55), Sebastian Weyer, who broke his 4x4 average(29.17), and Christopher Olson, who broke his 2x2 average(2.02).

[[Image:Suneinfo.png|150px|thumb|left|The Sune [[OLL]] case]]
 
 
 
Today's featured article is the term '''[[Sune]]'''.
 
 
 
 
 
The term [[Sune]]; (soo-nay), was coined by [[Lars Petrus]] for [[Petrus Method|his method]], and is the most widely recognized name for the sequence of moves and the case. The mirror/inverse alg/case is named ''Antisune'' (or ''Anti Sune''). Using double layers for the first and last moves it is called a ''Fat Sune''.

[[Image:Mefferts_skewb.jpg|left|thumb| [[Skewb]] into a [[solved skewb state|solved position]]]]
 
 
 
Today's featured article is the '''[[Skewb]]'''.
 
 
 
 
 
The [[Skewb]] (originally named the ''Pyraminx Cube'') is a twistable [[puzzle]] in the shape of a cube that is cut diagonally 2 times along each of 4 axes. It is a cube-shaped puzzle. It consists of 6 [[center]] pieces and 8 [[corner]] pieces (four of which are attached to the central core). Unlike the [[Rubik's cube]], which turns around faces, the Skewb turns around axes that go through its corners. It is a [[deep-cut]] puzzle - ie. each cut goes through the absolute center of the puzzle, and exactly half of the puzzle changes with each turn.
 
 
 
This puzzle was originally called the Pyraminx Cube by [[Uwe Meffert]], but Douglas Hofstadter suggested the name "Skewb", and it has been called that ever since.

[[Image:Revenge.JPG|150px|thumb|left|Direct solving can be done on a 4x4x4 cube]]
 
 
 
Today's featured article is the '''[[Direct solving]]'''.
 
 
 
 
 
[[Direct solving]] (as opposed to [[reduction]]); to solve a large cube ([[4x4x4]] and up) without reducing it to a [[3x3x3 cube]] before the final steps. Some direct solving methods are:
 
* [[Akimoto Method]]
 
* [[Cage]]
 
* [[KBCM]]
 
* [[K4]]
 
* [[Sandwich]]

[[Image:Ortega.gif|150px|thumb|left|The Ortega Method]]
 
 
 
Today's featured article is the '''[[Ortega Method]]'''.
 
 
 
 
 
The [[Ortega Method]] is a 2x2x2 and 3x3x3 [[speedsolving]] method named after [[Victor Ortega]]. It was independently invented by [[Victor Ortega]] and [[Josef Jelínek]]. It is mostly popular as an intermediate 2x2 solving method.

[[Image:Wiki 2x2x2 solved.jpg|150px|thumb|left|A [[2x2x2 cube]]]]
 
 
 
Today's featured article is the '''[[2x2x2 Cube]]'''.
 
 
 
 
 
The [[2x2x2 Cube]] (also known as a Pocket Cube or Mini Cube and normally referred to as the 2x2x2 or 2x2) is a twistable [[puzzle]] in the shape of a [[cube]] that is cut once along each of three axes.
 
This puzzle has 8 [[corner]] pieces only. The 2x2x2 cube has 3,674,160 possible positions (assuming one piece is always solved from orienting the puzzle), each of which can be solved in 11 turns ([[HTM]]) / 14 turns ([[QTM]]) or fewer.

Today's featured article

Today's featured article is the Skewb.


The Skewb (originally named the Pyraminx Cube) is a twistable puzzle in the shape of a cube that is cut diagonally 2 times along each of 4 axes. It is a cube-shaped puzzle. It consists of 6 center pieces and 8 corner pieces (four of which are attached to the central core). Unlike the Rubik's cube, which turns around faces, the Skewb turns around axes that go through its corners. It is a deep-cut puzzle (i.e. each cut goes through the absolute center of the puzzle, and exactly half of the puzzle changes with each turn).

This puzzle was originally called the Pyraminx Cube by Uwe Meffert, but Douglas Hofstadter suggested the name "Skewb", and it has been called that ever since.
