Proportional Oh was suggested by Alex Polonsky. It is a proportional Rubik's-Cube size version of Oh Cube.

Watch the YouTube video.
Buy the puzzle at my Shapeways Shop.

Check out the photos below.

Enjoy!

I have to say, I prefer the Proportional Oh over the normal Oh. Looks so nice.
It's solving-wise equal to a Rex Cube with exposed corners, am I right?

I think I like this version better. The other seems like an odd 3x3x3 while this one instantly shows it is special. How long till we see a Oh + 3x3x3? :lol:

Just when you thought they was nothing more left to do with a 3x3x3 :wink: Definitely an improvement over the original Oskar.

Very smart design move: the proportionality increases the 'oh' factor by a million fold, while the extra mini-triangle faces provides a greater solving challenge!

I would be interested to know how many permutations this has?

This is pretty cool, but I like the original design better. I just like how the oh gives no hint of how it turns.

That's one mighty large puzzle you have there Oskar. :lol:

Great work as always. Like the majority, I also prefer this version to the former Oh Cube.
