They're awesome. Real awesome. A nice blindsolve speed.
Did you use M2?
And you don't peek? Based on the video, you don't :D

Very nice video! Looks nice and professional. Too bad I bet most of your viewers will think the blindsolve was just an illusion ;)

How did you do the instant-solve trick?
A real magician never reveals his secret.
You sure you wanna know?
Really sure? You won't enjoy that trick once you know.
Last chance... This is a real spoiler.
OK, so the way it works is that 5 sides of the cube (all but yellow) are stickered normally, and the yellow side is instead covered in a random arrangement of stickers. Before the trick the magician performs a bunch of moves on a cube like that to "scramble" it. Then the magician solves the cube, while holding it so you can only see that one messed up face. He throws it up in the air, and catches it in such a way that the messed up face is against his hand. Then, the magician shows you the 5 solved faces (but of course, not the one other face which still look scrambled), so it looks like the cube suddenly transformed from scrambled to solved.

its a cube with only 5 sides solved and one side is stickered scrambled. so he did like 6 moves to scramble it, showed viewers that it was scrambled. then he reversed those six moves and made it so you could only see the scrambled side, then threw it up and caught it so you could see that side. notice in the video he only shows five sides at the end and keeps the scrambled stickered side covered.

Ah ah :)… Nate, "thank you" for revealing my magic trick.
The new improved version of this trick does use some magnetic stickers on the last face, so that after the throw you can actually palm the stickers and
show the whole scrambled cube and even give it out to be checked.
To be honest I never show that magic trick since I can solve the cube in 20 seconds and that's far more impressive for people, than seeing a rubik's cube solve himself by magic in the air.

Just that you know guys, no camera tricks was used. Every trick was really executed the way it looks.

And yes, I really did the Rubik's Cube blindfolded. I used M2-Old Pochmann. Here you can see the whole video:
