What's the best 2x2x2 mechanism out there, in terms of overall simplicity (fewest unique components), turning, corner cutting, stability, etc? Is there a picture of this somewhere?
Challenge: Can you design a better one?
Best 2x2 mechs for speed/corner cutting: Witeden 2x2 v1 (the one that has bigger internal mech parts), Dayan 2x2 (though a bigger mech to fit normal cores would be nice), Vcube-2, and [removed]/[removed]/variant of the Eastsheen 2x2 that have screws and springs.
Best 2x2 mech for simple features and few unique parts: Witeden 2x2 v1, Dayan 2x2 but shapes are complex, Rubik's 2x2 (the new one that has a rubik's 4x4 core).
Best 2x2 for stability: Rubik's 2x2 with tabs (old one), Quarks 2x2 if that counts, Eastsheen 2x2 without screws but instead those plastic clips.
Can we design a better one: Is that a joking question? (I know it's not, but I'll give it a go)
