The 4x4x4-variant of the stickering scheme called tartan cube.

Dan Hoey and Jim Saxe came up with the original Tartan 3x3x3 design on a posting to cube-lovers at M.I.T. back in 1981. It was their task to use only 4 colors to make a supergroup cube.

This is a 4x4x4 version of their design. The stickers were made by Olivér Nagy.

It's interesting to notice that you can figure out what the colour patters on the three unseen sides will be by just examining the three visible sides.

It is even more interesting that the Tartan-variants of the 2x2x2, 3x3x3 and 5x5x5 have been there for several year but the first sample for an 4x4x4 was presented no earlier than 2010.
