Not a bandaged 5x5x5 but a 3x3x3 with strangely displaced cuts.

In early 2011 Carl Hoff presented this idea: A 3x3x3 with non-equidistant cuts. See the fifth image for a sketch of the basic idea. However the idea was to have all six sides twistable by 90°-twists. Therefore additional cuts have to be made which give the puzzle the look of a 5x5x5 bandaged on its up and bottom side.
The result is a super set of the Venus-variant of the Crazy 3x3 Plus Cube as it has several additional pieces.
Tom van der Zanden presented a first prototype in February 2011. In october of the same year he presented the fully working version.
