Hi folks,

I made a new puzzle I call the "Rylox Prism". Acts like a 4x4x2 but has shape changing properties.

I'm having fun trying to solve it.. not sure how to move the centres and edges yet.

If you limited the moves so they kept the original shape, it's a really easy puzzle. So I think you should try to get it back into rectangular prism shape.

1. Solve the centers, very intuitive.
2. Pair the edges, except swapping them out with another takes a little bit more creativity.
3. Solve like a domino.

Also, btw, what mechanism does that use? 4x4 with extensions?

Very original. What did you use for tiles? They almost look squishy.

Very pleasant look, Mark.

Thanks everyone for the positive comments.

It was made from a 66mm Rubik's 4x4x4 cube and yes it has foam pads. I think it is an interesting puzzle. After I built it I realized that it was possible to create all sorts of shapes.
Except for the foam pads all the parts consist of ABS plastic.


I am making it available for sale: http://cubeman.org/cubesell.html


The price includes air mail shipping. Please allow at least 3 weeks for delivery.


Here are some more pictures of it's shaping changing properties on an earlier version:
