Looks like the first handmade modification ever but is a completely new puzzle. A pair of Siamese Cubes which allow to exchange pieces between the halves.

The Siamese Cubes invented by Tony Fisher is probably the first handmade modification of a Rubiks Cube ever made and presented. This new puzzle revisits that old concept. Several people (including Tony Fisher) where disappointed when they first recognized that there is no way to exchange pieces between the two cubes fused into one puzzle.
The puzzle of this entry overcomes this barrier and introduces an additional axes in the shared block.

This puzzle fills a gap the community saw way to long. Since Tony Fisher presented the first Siamese Cubes people had felt sad that the traditional variant represents nothing more than two bandaged 3x3x3s fused into a single object. This puzzle fills the gap. This puzzle allows an additional move which helps to exchange pieces between the two halves.
Even the puzzles name reflects this history.
