Could be viewed as a variant of the Gear Cube. Here the faces (in this case: the knobs) rotate too.

Polo Gears is a puzzle invented by Alex Polonsky. His family name gave the puzzle its name. After seeing his prototype, Oskar asked whether he could build his own prototype.
This puzzle is turned by turning knobs at opposite sides. Therefore the puzzle allows only alice moves and therefore behaves like a gear cube. In addition to the gear cube the four knobs which belong to the middle layer are turned during a slice move.
