Boy Gets Ready To Solve A Rubik’s Cube, But Then He Puts A Blindfold Over His Eyes

On a day-to-day basis, I consider myself to be a pretty smart person.

But  I cannot even attempt to solve a Rubik’s Cube — I seriously can’t believe that there are people out there who can do it so easily.

Whenever I try I just end up getting frustrated with all time it takes to get everything in its proper place.

I’ve been told that there are little steps and patterns to follow in order to solve one, and if you do it successfully once, you can keep practicing until you solve it with ease.

Well if that’s the case, then Chan Hong Lik, the 7-year-old kid in the video down below, must have spent a lot of time practicing — that, or he has magical powers.

He is so good a solving Rubik’s Cubes that he’s graduated past, oh, you know, doing it with his eyes open!

The young Rubk’s Cube wiz can actually complete the puzzle blindfolded, but he first has to spend a little while memorizing the jumbled sides.

The clip begins with him in competition, slowly studying all the sides since he won’t be able to see them later.

Then he slips the blindfold and goes to town, solving it in mere seconds without being able to see it. Is it sorcery? Does he have special physic abilities? You decide while watching below.

And don’t forget to SHARE the amazing stunt with friends and family on Facebook.
