My friend (Youhei "Rinrin" Suzuki) made an interest cube.

http://jp.youtube.com/watch?v=oYKnm1KOSzI

He stuck the lenticular lens stickers on the 3x3 normally cube.
Then the surface's pictures are changes by the sight angle.
Of course, this cube's centers have direction, then it is so difficult.

1st cube is only two faces are lenticular lens stickers.
2nd cube is all faces are lenticular lens stickers.

...His first trial solving is about 30 minutes. X-)

That's a very novel idea!
I can imagine such a cube with multiple solutions.

Thomas, I believe this cube only has one solution. But depending on what your sight angle is, the images will be different.

Fantastic idea, well done.

That's such a neat idea I can't believe no-one has done it before!

Nice!

Yes, but I can imagine a stickering where there are multiple solutions. Which will make the cube perhaps near impossible to solve.

Indeed the idea is so simple as ingenius.
I'm curious, which nice variants can be made from existing puzzles
with custom stickers like these.

This could be really confusing if it was just two different colors in one sticker, like if it was blue at one angle and red at another

really cool idea but is easy to solve cause of the logical images.Super sticker eastsheen is hard cause it isn't an logical image(it makes sense after solving).The thing that would be really hard would be a cube with those tiles with only solid color changing.BTW original idea
