I think the blindfold. While one-handed is difficult, it is a nuisance that can be overcome.

The different colours don't have different textures, so if you were blindfolded I think it would be an almost impossible feat.

There are only THREE ways to solve RC blindfolded...
1. CHEAT
2. Remember everything and match every move mentally.
3. Ridiculously unlikely luck that would be akin to an act of god!

With one hand, you have all the above AND being able to, presumably, use your eyes.

I didn't believe it was possible either until i saw this...

Personally i simply can;t the image of the cube for long enough to do it blindfolded. Recently i've been able to blame it on my short term visual memory deficit which they found i have; apparently its common in people it autism

How could they DARE to say it is common in people with autism to have a short term visual memory deficit when many with autism DON'T have the problem, and most WITHOUT DO have the problem. What is next? Are they going to say that it is common for people with autism to have only two arms? DUH!! !! !! !

There is a trick...a sequence to the rubik's cube, which solves it no matter how arranged. If I recall correctly, it only needs to have one corner situated a certain way to begin. To do it blindfolded, you only need to memorize the sequence. When I was in elementary school, the kids used to have races to see who could do it the fastest.

I picked solving the Cube blindfolded. I went to Cracker Barrel earlier and saw R. Cube, Slinky, and Chattering Teeth. I got me some Chattering Teeth because I have always been fascinated by them. I used to think they were someone's dentures.

I voted "One Handed", it seems like a much simpler way to do it.
