Rubiksolve has been the standard in computing simplified solutions to a jumbled 3x3 rubik's cube since 2007. The site is easy to use and the instructions it returns are simple. The solutions provided do not require memorization, nomenclature or special moves. Most other solver sites feel like doing homework, when you just want a solved cube.
This Kickstarter is to raise the funds needed so that I have time to program a 4x4 rubik's cube solver and add it to the existing site. Three years ago the website ended up on the front page of Reddit which dramatically increased the number of visitors it receives each day. Many of those visitor's have sent me an email requesting I add an easy to understand 4x4 rubik's cube solver to the website.
You might not care, which is completely fair as the rubik's cube is a 30 year old toy. The people that visit Rubiksolve are people that are tired of looking at a jumbled mess and just want their cube back to solved without tearing it apart or peeling stickers. :-) The 3x3 solver that exists has successfully solved over 3 million cubes.
If you want a 4x4 solver to go with the 3x3 solver then this project is how we make that happen. The reason I haven't made a 4x4 yet is that I don't have the free time that I did back in 2007 when I originally built the site. This kickstarter, if successful, would give me the time to complete a 4x4 solver for you without falling behind on my bills.
The figure below shows the percentage breakout of how the money will be spent. Approximately 60% goes into actual work, the rest is fees, taxes, and shipping costs.
Projected completion date of the refreshed website with the 3x3 and 4x4 solvers available should be no later than Mid-August. It will go live the second it is complete. Details below:
