I can't believe how nice it looks considering how simple it is (if that makes sense).

Thanks Tony!
It makes sense and it's one great compliment.
Thank you all.

This mod also has a nice side effect of making it clear which of the two solved states the cube is in. If it's solved "backwards", the triangles will match around each tip instead of on each plane. :)

It's very pretty! I think this needs mass-production! Excellent work.

I think this has a VERY good chance of being sold by the masses indeed.

Oh, Calvin!!

Thanks for the video Vadim, the looks and the movement are a brilliant combination
for this nice puzzle. I would surely get one of those whenever they are made available
because the letter "X" is the first letter of my surname (when written in Greek).

Excellent work and keep it up. This is exactly what I believe is needed, simplicity and elegance.

:)

This looks absolutely brilliant Vadim! If it were available mass produced I would buy one simply on the looks alone.

Excellent work! :D

From past experience this probably means some company will change their name to X-Dino and release puzzles called X-Dino 6, X-Dino 7 etc.
This would make a good piece of merchandise for the X-Games BTW.

The pictures and the video have been removed, obviously.
I would like to see a comment why. :( (My suspicion is that there is a chance that it will be mass-produced.)

I do not view Tep's post as a BUMP, because I can understand that it is frustrating to look at the thread in its current state.

Hi guys,
Sorry about that.
I was indeed asked to remove any images and videos from public domain as it's being prepared to be mass-produced. (Hopefully soon.)
You can see the images in the museum section though.
If you go into browse or search and type in X-Dino, it should come up.
Or search for my name, you'll be able to see it.
Best regards,
Vadim

Now that is exciting news! I really liked this puzzle when you first presented it here, and then you brought it to MPP and I absolutely loved it!

I'll certainly be one of the first in line when it is produced. Congratulations Vadim! :D

How can you tell? Vadim has explained in his last post, why he has removed the pictures and the video. At least at this stage your "Wow" looks a bit strange :roll: Or do you just write "Wow" for anything? :wink: (I seem to remember several similar posts. :) )

EDIT: OK, I did not remember that the pictures are still in the Museum, as Gus pointed out below.
The Bump by Tep on March 9th seemed to be rectified.
Just adding a "Wow" at this time, seems to be at least close to a BUMP.
My reaction had to do with the fact that our new member TimmyCuber98 wrote similar BUMPs before.
I meant it as a kind reminder :)
