These are some square-1 based mods that I came up with last week, they turned out better than I ever could have expected.

The Barrel-1 is actually a sticker variation of the square-1 as it has all the same pieces, except for the centers. I haven't figured out how to solve it directly with the barrel shape, but it is easy to solve using a derivation of a square-1 solution I figured out on my own.

The Tri-1 is completely different from the square-1 and will require all new algorithms. I plan on making a Tri-1 V2 that is actually a triangle sometime in the near future.

I don't have stickers for the Tri-1 yet, but I will soon. The Barrel-1 has only 6 colors because well, that was all that I had available.

here's some pics of the newly stickered tri-1, on ebay tomarrow.

It really is incredibly difficult to solve.
