In a conversation with my non-twisty-puzzler brother yesterday, I ended up showing him a few images or some puzzles I own and he showed me an image of a Japanese puzzle box he recently obtained.
I was telling him how big the twisty puzzling world is and how many different puzzle types their are and he said "so I assume there is a twisty puzzle out there that is a combination of he two?" one you can twist but also slide entire faces to one side and then continue to twist?", "erm....hmmm....I dont think so, I would assume that a mechanism like that would be far too unstable"


Has this ever been thought of discussed and is it quite frankly impossible?

Maybe the puzzle for that is Oscar's Tresure Chest. But on the other hand, maybe this puzzle is also acceptable for that description but it doesn't have a secret compartment. http://www.twistypuzzles.com/cgi-bin/pu ... ?pkey=2871 :-D

hmm sort of what I meant, but the treasure chest opens like a box but other than that it is no different to a standard 3x3.

That link you supplied does have shifting tiles but not shifting faces.

I really assume it must be an impossible mechanism

Can you link what the Japanese puzzle looked like?

So I think what would be the coolest sort of combination of the two would be a bandaged cube with sliding face tiles that can slide partway off when the cube is in certain states, and then it also opens when it's solved like the Treasure Chest. Should be simple enough for Oskar. :P
