All caps is used to represent shouting, and is bad "netiquette". Typically, this shows up only in flame messages when someone has lost their temper.

Plus, it's harder to read than mixed case. Punctuation helps a lot too. ;-)

I wish I did - I'd like to make one myself, but I have no idea how to actually do it. :?

The web address given is the site of the inventor. I have one that he made for me. There is a little secret that must remain in my opinion. At least I won't tell about it before Hidetoshi will not have done so eventually.

Yes, it's my site.
And thank you for your concern, georges. :)

If you want to make easily, height differences to plus-minus 1mm, 3mm, 5mm is best.
You need only cut 1mm, 3mm, 5mm for three faces, and heap 1mm, 3mm 5mm for opposite faces.
This is Easy Bump Cube.
My first idea is this one. But it is only 2mm height differences.

My real Bump Cube is so difficult to make. Because lowest height is only 9mm.
This is lower than normal Rubik's cube's inner circle. Yes, there are some artifices and idea to realize it.

Sorry, I hope to keep secret publicly about some idea of this puzzle. Because somebody bought it from me, then I hope to keep their prerogatives of it.
Please excuse my selfishness.

I'd rather purchase the gem than tarnish it's name by sloppily attempting to build one myself.

Maybe you also have a look on this (It's the one I currently use as avatar):

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... 6057129568

Sure, this is nothing to build by oneself at home (unless you have the machines), but the idea is similar.
At least I can say, that the base is still based on a normal 3x3x3-mechanism. The height difference of the single pieces is not as extreme as Hitetoshi's very beautiful design.

Regards - Frank

Hmm, I tested it and saw some..
Maybe that's caused by some temporary internet files on my PC. At least here's one from the mentioned ebay link.

I also plan to take pictures of the puzzles I have and which were missing in the puzzle database (unless the discussion about a Wiki).

So far as I understood G.P. Sutton, it won't be his last one.

Seeing as I need to goto college and all, I don't see myself being able to compete with you on the same kind of level bidding on it and or future ones. If Hidetoshi were to have a set price and make me one, I couldn't refuse such a once in a lifetime offer though.

I think for playing with it, a plasic version is better to handle. The metal version is hooking occasionally and I think I also will have to strengthen the springs a little bit. Some time ago when a child played with it during a party, some parts fell apart. Next day I sat there and tried to rebuild it correctly. I really don't know, what's more difficult - solving it or building it together correctly. This is one of the puzzles where cheating becomes really tiring :lol:

Hidetoshi's puzzle will probably twist smoother and it will be easier to find the right position for each tile because of the extremer height differences.
