Rubik’s Cube Blindfold Cubing World Record: 35.96 Seconds!
Haiyan Zhuang, a speedcuber from China, just broke the Blindfold Cubing World Record (WR) at the Beijing Open 2009 clocking in at 35.96 seconds. Yes, you read it right: THIRTY FIVE point NINETY SIX SECONDS. Beating his the previous (and his own) world record (45.55 sec) by nearly ten seconds faster.

He finished inspection at around 12.30 + seconds and started solving using a Freestyle method in solving the Rubik’s Cube blindfolded. With only about 23+ seconds of actual solving time (the official time includes the inspection time plus the actual solve), he left the competition with an insane and very ridiculous World Record.
