A 2x2x2 combined with a moving hole (aka sliding piece) puzzle.
Rubik's Cube and the 15-sliding-square puzzle are the most popular mechanical puzzles of the 20th and 19th century, respectively. What could be more obvious than combining those two great ideas?
Here you see the resulting combination, a 2x2x2 Rubik's Cube with sliding square faces.
The first version was dyed by the creator. Another version with stickers is available too. The lines on each pieces allow the puzzle to create some nive patterns.
Since 1990 Anthony Greenhill wanted to create a 3x3x3-variant of this puzzle and he even created a raw prototype but he neither finished nor presented this puzzle and therefore Oskar van Deventer is the first one to successfully combine the principles of the two preceding puzzles.
