Please note that some new cubes when being used for the first few times may experience what is termed a "pop". This is when one or more parts of a puzzle pop out without any damage actually being done to any of the pieces. This also occurs from time to time during normal usage. Pops are typically not considered a defect if the parts which come off can be reassembled by hand.

The cube turns smoothly, but has no detents or magnets. To feel the patterns of fairly low dots, you need to slide your fingers back and forth or in an orbit. This will be a challenge.
So this cube may be intended to be solved blindfolded...but that really isn't necessary. The fact that it is all one color and that you have to pay attention to the orientation of the center pieces makes this a nice alternative to a regular 3x3. Eventually I would like to solve it blindfolded but for right now I am very happy solving it as-is.
Update: still like this cube very much...BUT...if you're interested in solving the 3x3 blindfolded then I would strongly recommend you get the YJ Blind 3x3 instead. This cube has braille-type lettering...making it difficult to tell one side from another. The YJ cube makes it much easier to distinguish sides (colors).
I have only seen one other 3x3 puzzle designed for the blind. Compared to the other puzzle this puzzles has much better turning and just feels over all better. The only thing keeping this puzzle from being WCA legal is the lack of colors on the puzzle. The WCA does make allowances for those with blindness to use puzzles like this.
I have not yet mastered making sure the centers are correctly orientated with this puzzle yet though. The 1,4, and 5 have not become a problem. The 2,3, and 6 though get me every solve on day 1 with this puzzle.
I would suggest this to anyone who has any form of sight problems. It's great that this cube exist.
This is an interesting concept. I really like the concept. I have a question though: Is this wca legal?
This cube has very nice turning. However, this cube is NOT COMPETITION LEGAL as the noticeable bump technically counts as a logo, and there are no stickers. However it is a nice cube.
