  • You motivate me to learn this skill. I managed to learn it within 7 hours and be able to solve my first cube blindfolded. 👍

  • You’ve gotta learn how to learn how to do it without righting the letters down. So memorise the letters in your mind instead of writing it down.

  • When I saw your thumbnail for this I decided to try to solve it blindfolded before watching it. I average Sub 16 with the normal 3x3 with my eyes open. My first bld solve i failed but I kept on trying and I got 2 successful solves. Finished watching your vid you should try 4BLD solving

  • I don't think you were memorizing he algorithms efficiently. I'm a cuber myself (not a really good one tho) and I can learn 2-3 algorithms within 30 mjnutes or so. You execute the alg well once, and then you just keep doing it as fast as you can. It will quickly get into your muscle memory, and you wont forget it. The way you did it in my opinion isn't learning the alg itself, but the notations, so you pretty much have the whole sequence of moves in your head, and you could just say them out loud whenever you want, I on he other hand wouldn't be able to do that.

  • Amazing, and I love the mindset. I challenge you to see if you can solve 5 Rubik's cubes in a row whilst blindfolded, and not looking at them in between (remember all 5 algorithm orders in one look!)

  • Mike, that viedo was just beautiful. Alot of times I‘m really doubtfull about myself or my abbilities and I tend to think too negative. It may sound weird, but your video gave me hope. And it made me smile. And it made me feel at home in this world for a moment. I love how you‘re still so happy and joyful when you achieve one of your goals. It‘s joyful so joyful to watch as well! And I‘ve just seen the video of your wife learning how to juggle. Marvelous! :-D You guys are awesome! Thank you

  • You're actually more than 7 hours in, since a lot of the knowledge (and specially, the intuition) of solving a 3x3 while looking transfers. Very nice video! Kinda made me wanna pick blind up and actually get to a point where I can at least use it as a party trick, unfortunately OH doesn't impress much these days, :(
