He should come over to my house and fix my rubik's cube.

Astrophysicist says Rubik's Cubes are easy

Tyson Mao, 22, is among a new generation of competitive solvers of the Rubik's Cube, a plastic puzzle made up of small, coloured cubes which players twist in various directions until each side of the cube is a solid colour.

This weekend he will try to regain the title of world blindfold Rubik's Cube champion, a title he lost last year to his friend Leeann Loo who beat his time of one minute 58 seconds by 30 seconds.

"With some hard work I can probably make it. It is within reach," Mao told Reuters.

Mao took up playing with Rubik's Cubes about three years ago, introduced to the puzzle by his younger brother Toby who currently holds the world record for solving the Rubik's Cube -- 10.48 seconds.
