Hello Everyone, today i'd like to introduce a new bandaged puzzle I have devised; the 5x5x5 Corner Block Cube.

As you can probably tell it resembles the AI Cube, which for those of you who don't know is a 4x4x4 Cube with four opposite corners bandaged.

The corners have been bandaged together in 2x2 blocks on two diagonally opposite corners per face.

As pieces have been bandaged together functionality has been lessened, and to scramble the puzzle the four large corners have to be positioned together, at which point the normal layers can be twisted however desired. 180 degree twists must be done to fully scramble the puzzle. All of which is demonstrated in the video.

The pieces were bandaged together using superglue and the puzzle was spraypainted after to give the plastic a uniform finish. The stickers were cut by hand from Meffert's style sticker material.

Thanks for looking.

Fantastic, Ryan! :)

Looks really nice. I envy people such as you who can do this sort of stuff.

So now we have the AI cube (2x2x4x4), the 5x5x5 Corner Block Cube (3x3x5x5), and the Chimera cube (4x4x6x6).
That only leaves a logical next step, and I think I know who's going to build it... :twisted:
