Wow, that's the EXACT same method I use!

That's a DaYan GuHong "Color Cube". Yes, the cubies have the color molded right in. I thought it was cool as hell so I had to get one I picked it up from Lightake.com.

Unfortunately, they're not legal for competition. Fortunately, you will never see me in a cubing competition

I used mine as a skeet "pigeon" back in the 80's. It was infinitely satisfying to see the f*&*er that I couldn't solve get blow apart by the blast of a 12 gauge.

Never successfully completed one myself. I usually screw around for 5 minutes or so, get pissed, and chuck it at the nearest wall.

It's funny that this thread came up today. Yesterday I was walking over to Detroit Receiving Hospital to meet my Girlfriend for lunch, one of the valets was standing there doing one to pass the time. I hadn't seen one in at least a decade so it was kinda shocking. It was one of those shiny metalic ones like in the second pictures.

I can solve one side in under 1 minute if I haven't been drinking. Doing the whole thing takes much more time (gotta peel off the stickers and put them back on in the right order).

My personal best is also 47 seconds, which I find impressive because I was drinkin at the time. Plus it was one of those cases where one of the last steps was resolved for me, which anyone who does the layer method (others too I suppose) is familiar with. I average around a minute. I've worn out 3 cubes so far, but it's a fun trick, and people are usually impressed. I agree with the rubik's cube as stress ball idea; I often like to play with the cube when I'm nervous, since it gives my hands something to do.
