Interview with Cuber : Andrej Karpathy a.k.a badmephisto

Inilah wajah seorang badmephisto

Andrej Karpathy, lebih terkenal dengan nick badmephisto. Cuber yang satu ini tekenal di dunia cubing lewat tutorial-tutorial yang mudah dimengerti. Tersebar di websitenya, serta di channel Youtube badmephisto. Algoritma OLL, PLL dan F2L disitu hampir semuanya fingertrick friendly. Meskipun speednya masih di kisaran 16s, dia mampu memberikan tips dan trick yang keren di tutorialnya. Satu lagi yang membuat saya sangat mengagumi badmephisto, di hampir semua videonya dia tidak menampakkan wajahnya. Benar-benar berdedikasi untuk kemajuan speedcubing. Hanya sedikit orang yang mengetahui nama asli dari badmephisto. I’m your big fans!!

1. When did you start playing Rubik?
I started about May 2007.

2. Tell me about your cubing progress.

3. What method do you use?
I use the full standard Fridrich method

4. Your occupation now?
I’m a graduate student in Computer Science, working in Machine Learning and Physics based animation. Goal is to make our robots agile enough so that they can kill us all 🙂

5. What are the event that you play
I do 3×3 cube and 3×3 OH. I can do everything else but I’m too slow to compete with a straight face.
