At first glance, this cube looks deceptively easy to scramble and solve, with the incorrect assumption that it turns like a regular 2x2x2. The true challenge is quickly revealed after a few simple twists radically alter the cubic shape.
The unpredictable shape changes are produced by a concept called ’bandaging’, combined with a shape transformation technique often referred to as ’modding’. The puzzle is actually a 3x3x3 cube with pieces fused (’bandaged’) together and extended to produce a simpler looking puzzle.
There are several different solved states that are all indistinguishable from one another, meaning there is more than one solution.
The puzzle is off center for turning.
