Inspired by a mod made by Thomas, seen here.

Too expensive to use a Tower Cube and a QJ Domino was too poor in quality, so I used some stuff from my 'spares and leftovers' bag - it gets bigger every month :)

I cut down a mini 3x3x3 Dian Sheng, bandaged it, added some pieces to block the appropriate turns and stuck some Eastsheen shells (hollowed out with a Dremel) onto the corners. The blocking mechanism is quite flimsy, but hey, it works! It's unsurprisingly the same size as a regular Eastsheen 2x2x2. I cut the stickers for the 'pips' using the hole-punch from my desk at work.

Extremely difficult to solve :lol:

I've built a wooden one of these, out of an eastsheen mini 2x2 with some mechanism blocks added. Mine is pretty flimzy too. :lol: It blocks rotations one direction, but only stiffens up and locks on the other direction.

Awesome job, really clean. :D
