Crossroad Cube (or Latch IV Cube)
Above:Version 2
Click a thumbnail to see its larger version and description.
A variant of the Latch Cube. It reimplements the traditional bandaged cubes.

After the original Latch Cube several designers tried to implement similar mechanisms. "Latch IV Cube" is one of these attempts.
The stop signs indicate that the underlying face can't be twisted. Although this is a new mechanism it does not implement anything new from the perspective of solving because the stop signs are equivalent to the bonds known from "traditional" bandaged cubes.
There have been two versions presented a short time after the other.
Images 1 and 2 show the second improved version.
This second design was inspired by the Cabe Cube.

In 2013 mass production of this variant started. A whole series of four variants, called "Cross-Road Bandaged" was produced.
This one was renamed "Cross-Road Bandage Cube".
All four came in two different body colours (black and white) and two different boxes. The smaller one is shown here.
Edge length: 57 mm
Weight: 69 grams
