A Rubik's Cube for the Blind. Wait, what?

I bet you thought you were pretty bad-ass at solving Rubik’s cube, didn’t you? Thought maybe one day you might even beat this guy – who can solve one in about 7 seconds? Well, if you’re looking for a real challenge, here’s one for you: a Rubik’s Cube that has no visible colors on it at all.

The latest conceptual Cube simply uses braille and, obviously, is designed to be used by the blind. Unlike this version, which used textures to differentiate between the sides, each square has the name of a color written in braille on it, allowing the visually impaired to feel that weird, strange sense of satisfaction that comes from solving a puzzle.

The idea comes from designer Konstantin Datz, who not only has one of the world’s coolest first names, he also has a bunch of other design ideas at his website.
