Hi all!
I want to show you my new simple idea - Polar cube, a little similar to Shepherd's cube.
As you can see - in solved position all the arrows should be turned in one direction.

Question for math guys - is anybody knows how many turns required for to get "south-oriented" cube from "north-oriented"?

On a colorless [arrows only] cube, it's quite simple:

R2 F2 L2 R2 B2 R2 = 6 moves HTM, 12 moves QTM

Does R2 S2 R2 work? If so, that's only 4 HTM.
