Heaven on Earth, that is absurd lol. I am amazed by this. ShengShou (SengSo now?) has been putting out some crazy stuff recently lol. I can only imagine how that must be to construct.... and just design.... and oh god what happens when it pops.....

Maybe Asian people have skin that works better with frosted plastic than white people have.
Well, I am an Asian and I think that’s not the case. Many cubers that I know here in Taiwan hates frosted plastic as well because they slip. (Including me)

The true reason why cube companies uses frosted plastic is because they can hide scratches on the cube’s surface, because the scratches blend in with the frosted surface and becomes less visible.

Fair enough. It was a guess, but your explanation makes sense too, and I'm white with no Asian friends to ask.

It's pretty silly hypothesis but interestingly enough east asians tend to have almost no armpit odor and deodorant is unnecessary. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ABCC11 But I still think there is the same amount of sweat.

Dan told me he no longer makes Youtube videos and is no longer sponsored.
Sad but expected. Only reason I brought it up is because of this post from May. http://instagr.am/p/CAD0g7rjCop/

This is weird reasoning because I've never met anyone who has complained about their glossy cube having very minor scratches, but I do hear all the time about people having their cubes slip out of their hands.
