Closest thing I can think of is the Dayan Gem V which is a shape mod of a skewb :/

We'll most likely be seeing some stickerless Skewbs in the near future now that it is an official WCA event.

Cannot wait to see what the big speed companies do with the Skewb for speed now. I honestly think E-cubes should sell the IP for his skewb mods to a producer because he claims some really nice corner cutting.

My video is up!
I have designed a stickerless skewb, by placing tiles in the indents on the surface. All E-Cubes will have these when produced, so that tiles or stickers will not be damaged.

While that's excellent, I hope somebody designs a Colored Plastic skewb because I love the look of them. And I don't imagine splitting the corners is incredibly difficult, am I wrong? The Centers would be made in exactly the same way as currently.

Interesting idea putting springs in the piece feet rather than the core.
