The new puzzle is a higher-order extension of the "Tetraminx". This very first prototype shows that the novel internal mechanism works very robustly and smoothly, even though the components are just roughly manufactured. In pricipal, the puzzle and the mechanism should be as good as the famous Rubik's cube 3x3. :D

I am now looking for someone who can mass-produce this so-called "Master Tetraminx" puzzle. Thank you very much for your comments and co-operations if possible. :)

Thanks alot guys for your replies. I very much appreciate your comments! :D

Yes, the hexagonal faces do turn indeed! :D Each side of the normal Tetraminx has 2 layers, and it is equivalent to the square 2x2x2.
As you can see from the last picture, each side of my designed puzzle has 3 layers, so it is of an order higher, equivalent to the square 3x3x3. That's why it is called as "Master Tetraminx", and you need a better agorithm to solve it :D

I made this very first rough prototype just to demonstrate that the novel internal mechanism is very robust and smooth, and the puzzle can be used for speed-cubing. :)

Many thanks again.
Best wishes,

I'm afraid it wouldn't be wise to elaborate as of yet :)
