It would be infinitely more impressive if he was solving them at the same time.

@Squrlz4Sale That makes the most sense. Perhaps it was scrambled in a way that he could solve it without too much effort.

Knowing a method for solving the thing myself I find it rather hard to believe it was actually scrambled. With the cube constantly rotating in air I can't tell what he's doing though. (One reason I find it hard to believe lol.) But who knows. I'm no expert. My best time being just under two minutes when people solve it in seconds. If he's really a genius who spent countless hours doing this it's probably doable given that he had 6 minutes or so.

@KLouD: I think EgalM is on to something. You can take a solved cube and with a sequence of repetive moves (right-side back, top clockwise, rotate entire cube 90 deg clockwise--repeat 10X, for example) scramble it in a way that can readily be solved by reversing the movements 10X.

I've been suspicious of these juggling videos because every bonafide video I've seen of a cube stunt is careful to include 15 seconds at the start of someone else doing a thoroughly random scramble on camera (because everyone familiar with the cubes knows that you can cheat as described above).

Obviously a suspicion is not proof of anything, and perhaps these jugglers really *are* solving random cubes. But if they *can* accomplish such an incredible feat, it's peculiar they aren't including that 15-second random scramble at the start so as to leave no question of their ability.

Sorry. Einstein. I was a little too deep into the single malt.

Watched a video explaining how most people do these tricks. It boils down to spinning two ways till it comes back to the start. So they spin top, than side till it's half way, than just keep going to finish it. Wish I could find that link, I suck at explaining.

Myth. You can't solve a cube by only turning 2 sides. I've seen what you're talking about but yes its a myth.
