I watched his last move frame-by-frame. He's doing some amazing things with his fingers, moving 2-3 slices on different axes in one smooth motion. Watching a top athlete do their thing is always remarkable, and speedcubing, however dorky, is no exception.

His secrets:

It's really interesting to see in slow motion what he's doing and then see it in realtime.

Anyone ever thought this is just a scrammble of a Rubik's Cube played in reverse?

Damn, that's amazing. Although that cube looks suitably greasy-up ready for slick action.

It seems to be the real thing. He has a whole library of individual moves, where he does those multi-axle moves in slow and fast motion. This guy is the real thing. It seems like there's a whole group of other speed-cubers.

You'd look that miserable too if you'd spent your life solving rubix cubes. Still, nice finish.
