Hi Twisty Puzzles fans,

Mixup 2x3x3 was suggested by Eric Vergo. It is a 2x3x3 twisty puzzle, similar to the classic "Rubik's Domino" puzzle. However, this puzzle has an additional twist, which allows it to be turned to strange shapes.

The mechanism is identical to Hex Cube, and similar to Mixup Cube and Mixup 2x4x4.

Watch the YouTube video.
Buy the puzzle from my Shapeways Shop.
Read more at the Shapeways Forum.
Check out the photos below.

Enjoy!

Oskar

Oskar, if Erno Rubik is the father of twistypuzzles, then you are the king. Nice job!

Simple, beautiful, but mostly unexpected.

That was not what I was expecting it to turn like. Very well done!

:shock: Wow... is that puzzle real? Amazing work again Oskar! I can't belive that you can make puzzles that look completely impossible real. You make puzzles that people want before they even know they want them. That is what I call thinking ahead to the extreme. :lol:
