Haiyan Zhuang’s Secret Weapon…


What? You don’t know who the heck Haiyan Zhuang is? Let me refresh your memory my young Padawan learner…

Haiyan Zhuang is the official World Record holder for Blindfold Cubing beating his old record by 10 seconds. Maybe he thought 45.55 seconds wasn’t fast enough, so he donned his blindfold again at the recent Beijing Open 2009 and recorded a mind-blowing time of 35.96 seconds! Check out this post for more info (plus a video to prove it) for this amazing human feat.

Speedcubers got curious what Haiyan was using during his solve, catching their attention was a slightly different designed white cube. Speedsolving.com forum member supergin from Beijing, China said that it’s actually called a “Jia Wu” Cube, a new Type A DIY.


Speedcubers around the world are clamoring for this interesting new design which unfortunately isn’t available on any known online cubing stores at the time of this writing. If you happen to know a place where this cube is available, kindly post information on the comments section and it will be greatly appreciated.

Tell me what you think!
