A new principle to bandage a 3x3x3.

This method to constrain a 3x3x3 is based on the idea of Fenz but implemented by Evgeniy Grigoriev. It is a form of dynamic bandaging.
All cubies marked with black are connected at any time. The chain they form can't be separated.
Note that the snake has its own pattern too, and if there are equally colored cubes, then parities are possible.
A short time later the inventor presented a new version which makes clear what is going on here. See the images 13-17. The inventor named this version "Linked Cube".
