Scroll down for video A new study has found that when we anticipate an event, we automatically visualise it in 'fast-forward' beforehand.
This prediction technique allows us to make quick decisions about trajectories, such as whether a speeding car will hit us if we cross the road (stock image) To understand how the human brain anticipates motion, the researchers showed 29 healthy participants a sequence of dots.
A 23-year-old 'professional speedcuber' has set a new world record by completing a Rubik's Cube in just 4.59 seconds.
Korean Seung Beom Cho solved the 3D puzzle in his first round at the World Cube Association's Chica Ghosts 2017 event in Chicago, smashing his previous personal best of 6.54 seconds.
Callum Hales-Jepp broke a national record for the UK by using his feet to solve the 3×3 cube in 38.9 seconds.
Another UK competitor, Harry Savage, completed the same sized cube with the fewest moves in 26 seconds. 🏆First: Robert Yau Second: Alexander Lau Third: George Scholey pic.twitter.com/Na Oke Hw YYP— John Adams Toys (@John Adams_Toys) October 29, 2017The machine, known as 'Sub1 Reloaded' and developed by German tech company Infineon, was aided by one of the world's most powerful microcomputers.
Footage of Mr Cho's attempt shows him given just a few seconds to examine the cube before starting, completing it just moments later.
",' Mr Ekman said.'Our study suggests that our visual system can fast-forward the trajectory of the car and thereby help us with our decision whether to wait or not.'To understand how the human brain anticipates such motion, Mr Ekman and his team showed 29 healthy participants a sequence of dots.
The world record has been slashed dramatically over the past 20 years and in 2003, it stood at 16.7 seconds.
Rubik's Cube was invented in 1974 by Hungarian sculptor Ernő Rubik.
And a one-handed national record was smashed by Ciaran Beahan for Ireland, who took just 13.69 seconds to solve the puzzle. The robot took a fraction of a second to analyse the cube and make 21 moves to solve the puzzle.
Last year a robot solved a Rubik's cube in 0.637 seconds at the Electronica Trade Fair in Munich, Germany.
Then, they showed participants just the first dot of the sequence, and found that the brain showed the same pattern of activity as when participants were watching the whole sequence, only this time in fast-forward.
