Here it is folks, the professor's domino, also known as the 5x5x2.
This puzzle has been technically finished for a week or so, but only last night was I able to sticker it.
Sadly, by the time I had it ready for pictures, it was scrambled, and I have yet to figure out how to solve it.

I would like to give a special thank you to olz for this design(it is an almost identical design to the 3d printed one), and I look forward to hopefully casting many more of his designs.(The molds of the next design are curing as I type this)

This is the first prototype of the 5x5x2s, and I plan on making a few more in the next few months. I may start a waiting list if I feel I can keep up with the orders and become satisfied with the quality of these puzzles.

At this time, I am not extremely happy about how this puzzle turned out nor will I be selling this prototype... the puzzle is rather loose, and if turns are not completed, some pieces do fall out, but overall the turning isn't bad, although it does sometimes catch a little.

So, without further ado, I present the 5x5x2, video and pictures:

There have been many pillowed puzzles, but this is the first real pillow!
