This cube turns like a normal 3x3, but you can also turn it down the lines i have written. (Sort of like a helicopter cube.)

Has this been made? This seems like it would be an extremely fun puzzle!

Just a note, i did not intend for it to look like a dino cube. I meant for it to turn on the "Square" areas.

I assume you mean edge-turning. In that case you'd have to make that a curved cut to prevent the tip from colliding with the sides.

I think he means a 3x3 little chop combo. Since the little chop mechanism is so complex, it will probably be a long time before we see something like this accomplished mechanically.

Yeah you're probably right.

A shells-mech buildup of the little chop is pretty complicated. Adding to that the cuts of a 3x3x3 is getting into the realm of totally unrealistic.

Complicated? Unrealistic?

Sounds like a job for Oskar! :lol:

Well.. Don't quote me for this, as I am not 100% sure...
But I believe Oskar said that he thinks hybrids are... Boring?
I'm not sure. I am fairly certain that he said that he much prefers original puzzles.
