Fun: Speed Stacking

[Emily Fox]Wow is all I could say when I saw this video. Basically Emily Fox is a 15/16 year old student who can “speed stack” and unstack cups in the format 3-6-3 (3 cups on either side a 6 cup pyramid) in 2.72 seconds and can do a “cycle stack” (of 3-6-3 followed by a 1-10-1 pyramid followed by a 3-6-3 “down stack”) in 7.43 seconds (that’s a world record).

Just look at her hands go! I’ve watched the video and worked out that she touched each of the 12 cups 6 times – that means she was placing a cup every tenth of a second. Ok, she used both hands – but that still means changing cups every one fifth of a second.

This post is over 6 months old.

This means that, despite my best intentions, it may no longer be accurate.

This blog holds over 12 years of archived content - during that time, I may have changed my opinion of something, technology will have advanced (and old "best standards" may no longer be the case), my technology "know how" has improved etc etc - it would probably take me a considerable amount of time to update all the archival entries: and defeat the point of keeping them anyway.

Please take these posts for what they are: a brief look into my past, my history, my journey and "caveat emptor".
