Just showing you guys a little item I received in the mail today called "Instant Kubick".


It is supposed to look like a 4x4. It is a millimeter or two smaller than an Eastsheen.

It is seen here, the only video I could get of it.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y3JQAYeWGDQ

The toy is made up of 8 cubes, connected to each other along the edges in as certain way so that in from one position to the other, the inside becomes the outside and the outside becomes the inside.

I'll try getting my own video up soon.


Just thought I'd share this. Doesn't have any puzzling value, but it might make a nice addition to a collection. I got mine for under 5 dollars including shipping.

I'm sure there's at least a 1/0 chance of a parody :roll:

Here's a picture of it while waiting for Noah's video.
You must grip the cube rather tight when showing it around (at least mine)

It is not even a possible configuration on a normal 4x4. :D

Yes, but then spectators don't have a chance to notice ... with all the obscurity and speed the trick is done.

Well it's obviously not going to be accurate. The crowd won't know the difference.
