My parcel of Floppy Cubes arrived today and as usual within a few minutes of receiving new puzzles I was ripping one apart. A short time later I had created by far the easiest puzzle transformation I have ever made. It resembles Siamese 1x2x2s but is different.
I wasn't going to show it to anyone since I was just finding out what kind of things you can do with a Floppy Cube. Then I remembered the countless requests I get to make tutorials for newbies on YouTube. So mainly for them, a puzzle you can make in less than a minute with virtually no tools or materials.
You will probably guess that I spent even less time thinking up a name for it.

Wow that looks really cool! I am still trying to figure out how it was made...


By the way, this where I am supposed to say: "Woot first post!"

:shock: How do you make something so simple look so cool?

Since you got 2, you should make a floppy fisher cube. :)

Epic :lol:

That's WAY too confusing to build! I'm not sure if I even have that type of screwdriver! :D

I like how you threw the screwdriver at 2:03, probably in disbelief of you actually making the video.

Imagine this, but cut into a rectangle.
Meaning- the first picture with the edges cut vertically, through the center of the piece to the opposite corner of the piece, and the corners cut the same way vertically.

Oops :oops:
Yes... horizontally...
Would it work, though?

I don't see any reason it wouldn't. If you have a spare floppy cube, try it out!

GET OUT OF MY HEAD, TONY!!!
Sorry about yelling there...
I had that idea a week ago, and have been looking forward to the arrival of my floppy to try it out!
no fair :cry:
I also came up with ideas for another bunch of his mods, but found out that he made them years ago, without ever seeing them on the internet... I can show drawings as proof!!
I think I'm somehow connected to Tony telepathically :shock:
Well... *sigh*... I guess I'll just post my other idea since I don't want to chop mine up...
Imagine this, but cut into a rectangle.
Meaning- the first picture with the edges cut vertically, through the center of the piece to the opposite corner of the piece, and the corners cut the same way vertically.
And of course... good one, Tony :roll:


If you make those cuts then you are losing part of what holds the puzzle together. It might work but I don't think so.

That's what I was thinking, but still don't have one, so I wasn't exactly sure of the mech.

this looks like a 3x3 version of a puzzle idea i though of a while ago involving 2x2'2. correct me if im wrong but they are very similar. not to tell you what to do but would you ever consider truncating those corners to look like my puzzle? heres the thread: viewtopic.php?f=9&t=10642
