Scramble (from the Blindfold Race 2012-18):

Total time: 1:17:38.25
Memorization time: 40:10

Scrambling and memorization are sped up 32x; solving is sped up 8x.

If you're crazy enough to want to see the raw footage (all hour and 20 minutes of it!), it's here (not visible on my channel):

Wow, this is amazing. I would never be able to memorize so much. Great job! Also I love how happy you look when you see that you solved it.

Scramble? Check.
Full raw video? Check.

:)

(Brest, if you are crazy enough to try it, you might double-check the scramble at the beginning - there's always the chance I scrambled it wrong - I didn't check it yet. But I do know that on one of my earlier attempts, I definitely scrambled it correctly, because I accidentally printed out the same scramble the next week, and I recognized it after a couple of locations as I was memorizing it and had to start over. :))

As soon as there's a decent one available. (ShengShou?)

WOW! CONGRATULATIONS MIKE!

I wouldnt be afraid of memorizing so much, i would be afraid of not knowing wich layer to turn. I mean, how do you really know wich layer to turn? Especially on the edges?!
How do you do that?!
I really want to solve the 7x7x7 BLD, but i just never tried, because i dont know how i can recognize the different layers while blindfolded.

Greetings, Dennis
