Some might be interested in this auction. It's not a completed auction but then, It's not a puzzle either. These are sets of 64 magnets similar to Daniel's magnetic cubes. There's plenty of sets available on this auction for all. They look very nice.

I almost jumped on the BIN when I first saw that auction last week. Mostly because they are so pleasing to look at, I guess. I stopped when I realized that the 4x4x4 cube pictured is very small at only one cubic inch. Each of these little magnets is about the same size as one cubie from a Rubik's Cube Necklace!

Even if they didn't suffer from the opposite pole problem, they'd be far too small to actually play with.

Remember they wont work like Daniel's puzzles. These magnets will have poles, the pieces in Daniel's puzzles can be placed with any orientation and still attract.

Still great fun though, I just asked about shipping to the UK ;)

Attractive though no less. It'd be nice to have a whole pile of them.
