A brilliant design, filled with symmetries, some of which only become apparent after you scramble it.

Dan and Jim came up with the original Tartan design on a posting to cube-lovers at M.I.T. back in 1981. It was their task to use only 4 colors to make a supergroup cube.

It's interesting to notice that you can figure out what the colour patters on the three unseen sides will be by just examining the three visible sides.
