Hi Twisty Puzzles fans,

Disorientation Cube is a Rubik's cube with eight 12.7 mm steel balls. There are placed in the corners. As the balls slide down into little recesses in the core, the top and side faces cannot turn. Only the bottom face can turn. Therefore a solver needs to reorient the cube before making a next turn. This can be really disorientating and provides a new solving experience to a classic puzzle.

Buy the puzzle at my Shapeways Shop.

Check out the photos below.

Enjoy!

Great concept.

In fact the thing that intrigues me most is whether this can be considered as a form of bandaging, or even whether it is constrained mathematically? Is our own relative position and orientation in the universe part of the puzzle? What a great philosophical discussion we could have on this!
